Meeting Description:

Linguistic Landscaping (LL) as a linguistic tool for investigating language
use in the public space has become a major research area since the beginning
of the 21st Century. In a multilingual setting, the semiotic of signs visible
in the different public and commercial domains has emerged as an instrument in
capturing the ideological field of research in the present linguistic study.
LL approach, as an instrument for social groundings, has broadened the scope
of understanding multilingualism in a relatively new and innovative
perspective encompassing the different fields of research such as issues of
deep multilingualism, inclusive globalization, emerging linguistic market,
language policy and new linguistic world order. The aim of this conference
therefore is to provide new platform to linguists and scholars across the
globe to discuss the issues relating to LL. Presenters wishing to discuss a
very local issue with international specialists are most welcome. In a similar
vein to the issues underpinning in the title of the conference, we propose to
reflect on the following possible themes but not limited to:

- Linguistic landscaping and alternative sociolinguistics
