I'm delighted to announce a one-day conference at Bangor University on 23 May 2016, 
on the subject of 'The Welsh language and the Workplace'.

The plenary speaker will be Prof. John Edwards, of St Francis Xavier University 
(Canada), editor of the Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, and 
prolific author on topics of minority languages, very much including Welsh!

The registration and abstract submission page is here: https://goo.gl/PEJPW0 
(includes plenary abstract, conference venue, and directions). You're welcome along 
in a presenting or non-presenting capacity, but please register either way on that page.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is Tues 19th April, 3pm. The registration 
deadline for attending in a non-presenting capacity is Mon 16th May, 3pm.

The event is sponsored by the Language, Culture and Identity Thematic Group of WISERD 
(http://www.wiserd.ac.uk/), and there is no registration fee.

A provisional timetable will be released once all the abstracts are approved, but the 
conference is likely to last the full working day and include a roundtable discussion 
at the end, in which all participants (presenters and non-presenters) are welcome to 

If you have any questions, feel free to contact either me, Rhys Jones 
(raj at aber.ac.uk) or Sarah Creed (CreedS at cardiff.ac.uk).

Please forward this message on to anyone you feel may be interested.

See you in Bangor!
