Call Deadline: 01-Nov-2014 

Meeting Description:

Annual conference focused on the study of linguistic landscapes (LL). The 2015
workshop, to be hosted by the Berkeley Language Center at the University of
California, Berkeley, aims to take up questions under the general theme
'Linguistic Landscape: Questioning Boundaries, Opening Spaces.' In particular,
the organizers hope to encourage critical inquiry, reflection, and exploration
by inviting participants to consider the productive nature of 'boundaries' and
'spaces' on (at least) two levels: first, as real-world phenomena that are
observed, inhabited, produced and transgressed by human actors in the LL; and,
on the meta-level, as conceptual tools that can help us define, question, and
problematize the field.

Call for Papers:

The 2015 workshop will be comprised of sessions with two types of presentations:

A. Individual research papers will be given 20 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for questions and discussion. Papers meaningfully addressing the conference theme are particularly encouraged, although contributions on other topics are also welcome.

B. Reflections on practice will be given 10 minutes each, and will take place in a roundtable setting. In their reflections, presenters will address specific areas of interest, and raise questions about topics including: Teaching in and with the LL; methodological challenges in conducting LL research; LL and political activism; LL and public policy; art in and with the LL; LL in the media; LL in architectural planning. Other suggestions are welcome.

Applicants may choose one of the three options when submitting a proposal:

Option 1: Individual Research Paper only
Option 2: Reflection on Practice only
Option 3: Individual Research Paper and Reflection on Practice

In particular, Option 3 is envisioned as a unique opportunity for researchers to further explore, reflect, receive feedback, and further develop their projects.

All abstracts should be submitted online at http://linguisticlandscape7.berkeley.edu by November 1, 2014. Abstracts for Individual Research Papers may be up to 300 words; abstracts for Reflections on Practice may be up to 200 words. Applicants for Option 3 will be prompted to upload two separate abstracts. All abstracts will be evaluated by two independent reviewers.

Important Dates:

Online submission system open: August 15, 2014
Deadline for abstract submission: November 1, 2014
Notification of acceptance: December 1, 2014
