Meeting Description:

Research on multilingualism has grown dramatically in recent years, in terms of quantity, quality and breadth. Studies on multilingualism are both theory-driven and practically-oriented and explore cognitive, educational and social aspects.  However, in an era when new technologies are becoming increasingly visible in our everyday lives, research focusing on multilingualism in digital media is still in its infancy.

Digital media have a considerable impact on communicative repertoires in that they promote new forms of literacies and provide alternative communicative dynamics and structures, involving monolingual and multilingual speakers alike. This means that the communicative practices and repertoires of people can potentially be transformed.

The aim of this conference is to explore how and to what extent multilingual people or communities use their various codes in digital environments and what kind of interactional patterns, communicative repertoires and digital literacies emerge.

Plenary Speakers:

- Professor Alexandra Georgakopoulou (King's College London)
- Professor Yaron Matras (University of Manchester)
