Meeting Description:

Workshop: Minority Languages in a Multilingual Europe

During TABU Dag, a workshop on minority languages in a multilingual Europe will be organised on Thursday 13 June from 13:30 until 18:00.

In Europe, 23 official languages and more than 30 regional and minority languages are spoken. The European Union considers respecting and protecting the linguistic diversity within the European Union to be one of its most prominent responsibilities, because language forms the cultural identity of its citizens. But how can this goal be achieved, with so many languages and language varieties being spoken in the European Union, the smallest of them sometimes only by around 1000 speakers? How can a minority language be maintained in a period of globalisation? Are language policies the way to maintain a minority language or can they sometimes be counterproductive? Which other factors play a role?

Call for Papers:

Topics of the workshop will be:

1. Vitality vs. endangerment
2. Language policies
3. Language attitudes
4. Language and identity
5. Minority languages in education

The workshop will be opened by a keynote speaker (t.b.a.) and closed with a panel discussion. During the workshop five other speakers will get the chance to present their work on European minority languages. We invite short abstracts of no more than 300 words, excluding title, author names, keywords, data and references. Abstracts should be submitted in .pdf or .txt format. Time allotted for presentations is 20 minutes, followed by 5 minutes of discussion.

The deadline for the abstract submission is 31 March 2013. You are invited to submit your abstracts using the following link: 


Notifications of acceptance will be sent on 30 April 2013.
