Meeting Description:

Dimensions of linguistic landscapes in Europe: Materials and 
methodological solutions

The purpose of this symposium is to draw together researchers interested 
in linguistic landscapes (signs in space) in various parts of Europe. Although
written multilingualism is everyday reality in this vast area, our knowledge
concerning (1) its nature, (2) grammatical and pragmatic aspects and (3)
variation, spread and conventionalization of innovation are still in many 
ways limited. This one-day symposium hopes to attract researchers at 
various phases of their career to present their work and to discuss the 
future prospects of LL research in Europe. We envisage the symposium to 
be an informal occasion during which new contacts are created and various 
forms of LL data/material and methodological solutions are introduced and 
discussed. 

Call For Papers

The study of linguistic landscapes (semiotic signs in space) has emerged as 
an interesting field in the recent years. As suggested by Shohamy and 
Gorter (2009: 4), it has expanded from mere documenting signs to 
contextualizing observations and problematizing signs visible and audible in 
space. Its recent contributions have presented a number of approaches, 
ranging from theoretical and methodological solutions to critical and applied 
perspectives on linguistic landscapes.

The purpose of this symposium is to draw together researchers interested 
in linguistic landscapes in various parts of Europe. Although written 
multilingualism is everyday reality in this vast area, our knowledge 
concerning (1) its nature, (2) grammatical and pragmatic aspects and (3) 
variation, spread and conventionalization of innovation are still in many 
ways limited. This one-day symposium hopes to attract researchers at 
various phases of their career to present their work and to discuss the 
future prospects of LL research in Europe. We envisage the symposium to 
be an informal occasion during which new contacts are created and various 
forms of LL data/material and methodological solutions are introduced and 
discussed. The program consists of a brief introduction by the organizers 
and a number of 30-minute slots (20+10 mins) for individual papers followed 
with a general discussion. After the symposium, we plan to publish a 
selection of the papers presented. Peter Lang publishing house has kindly 
offered an opportunity for publication in their Sprachkönnen und 
Sprachbewußtheit in Europa/Language Competence and Language 
Awareness in Europe.
