Meeting Description: 

With multilingualism as a major research theme for linguistics and social sciences, this conference places Africa at the centre of cross-disciplinary research. We will take stock of existing and emerging research, e.g. of the role of youth languages in urban contexts or of the use of multiple languages in popular music and literature. Unique components will be the discussion of topoi that are commonly debated in separate disciplines and our perspective on multilingual settings in both urban and rural areas. Finally, we hope to break a widespread hegemonic view in favour of a perspective informed by intimate insights into lived multilingualism.

For this two-day conference, a registration fee of £50 is payable in advance at the time of booking. There is a reduced fee of £20 for the unwaged/retired and for undergraduate and postgraduate students.

The registration fees as listed above are payable even if you wish to attend only part of the conference.
