Meeting Description:

The aim of the 3rd edition of PILL conference is to bring together scholars of varied disciplines to explore the issue from a range of perspectives. By applying a variety of analytical tools and concepts, contributors will hopefully show how people construct images of themselves through language, how they shape, perform and re-shape their personal identities within and across local and dominant discourses and finally how language resources are selected and used to perform desirable versions of identities.

Following keynote speakers have already confirmed their participation:
