Meeting Description:

The international conference Approaches to Migration, Language, and Identity,
which will be held at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) from 4-6 May
2017, aims to bring together scholars working on any aspect of migration,
language, and identity. This three-day conference offers a forum for
researchers working in the fields of politics, geosciences, linguistics,
anthropology, economics, sociology, social (economic, legal) history and more
to gather together and exchange ideas. Both synchronic and diachronic
approaches are welcome.

The conference is motivated by the increasing awareness of the importance of
interdisciplinary approaches to the study of migration as well as its
implications on language, culture, and identity. As such, we want to
facilitate a discussion about how issues related to language, migration, and
identity impact people’s lives.

The plenary speakers cover areas in different fields related to the conference

- Ofélia Garcia, Professor of Urban Education and of Hispanic and
Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Languages, Graduate Center of the City
University of New York
- Li Wei, Professor of Applied Linguistics at the Institute of Education,
University College London
- Ben Rogaly, Professor of Human Geography, University of Sussex
- Naomi Tadmor, Professor of History, Lancaster University

In order to maintain the interdisciplinary nature of the conference, we are
only accepting abstracts for 20-minute papers. We ask authors to present
original papers and thus not to present research that has already been
published. Abstracts must be submitted in .doc (or .docx) and .pdf format. All
abstracts must have a title at the top of the page and should not exceed 500
words of narrative text, i.e. examples, figures, tables, and references do not
count towards this 500-word limit. The author’s/authors’ name/s should not
appear on the actual abstract, but only on the abstract submission form.

Successful abstracts will contain:

a) A clear research question
b) Reference to relevant prior research
c) A detailed description of the method (bearing in mind the “approaches”
theme of the conference)
d) Preliminary results (if possible). Relevant references should also be
