Linguistic Field(s): Anthropological Linguistics; Sociolinguistics 

Call Deadline: 31-Jan-2012 

Meeting Description:

This is a one and half day event hosted by Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh. The aim of the Symposium is to bring together scholars working on 'new speakers' of minority languages in different parts of the world where traditional communities of speakers are being eroded. In these contexts, new speakers often emerge as a result of revitalization efforts and more favourable language policies, prompting some individuals to become speakers of the minority language and to invest in its provision for the next generation. 

Registration fee: £50 (Concessions: £35)

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

Professor Alexandra Jaffe
Professor Alan Davies 

Call for Papers:

In this Symposium we welcome contributions related to the 'new speaker' theme either from a theoretical perspective or/and case studies of new speakers of specific linguistic minorities. These contributions will be included in the programme as individual papers or as part of round table discussions.

We welcome abstracts of not more than 300 words in length, by no later than 31 January 2012. Abstracts should include the presenter's name and institutional affiliation, if any, a very brief biography (not more than a further 100 words), and a contact email address. It is expected that information on acceptance of proposals will be communicated by 15 February.

Please email your abstracts to Bernadette O'Rourke at b.m.a.o'rourke at hw.ac.uk.

Abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by our Scientific Committee and will be evaluated in terms of their relevance to the theme of the Symposium.
