Small Language Planning:  Communities in Crisis
University of Glasgow
6th-8th June 2016
Confirmed Plenary Speakers:
François Grin (University of Geneva)
Leena Huss (Uppsala University)
Brian Ó Curnáin (Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies)

Building on the success of the Soillse conferences held in 2011 and 2015,
this confer   Although not limited to small language planning, the
particular focus of this year’s conference lies in issues pertinent to
language planning at the meso and micro levels, strategic interventions in
support of minority language groups with weaker demographic densities, as
well as to minority languages considered ‘stateless’ and/or without state

Presentations length.  Panels are intended to be a series of linked papers
on a particular theme, while discussion groups are intended to serve as a
more informal platform to raise and debate key issues in language planning.
Facilitators are encouraged to be creative in how they mediate the various
discussion groups.

Abstracts  Abstracts for panels should include each individual abstract
plus a rationale of no more than 300 words for the panel as a whole.
Discussion groups should also be no more than 300 words and should include
the names of at least three confirmed discussants as well as the
facilitator(s).  Participants should clearly mark what format is intended
for their presentation under the title of their abstracts. If intended as a
traditional paper presentation, please indicate whether or not you would be
happy to give the paper in poster form instead.  Abstracts addressing any
aspects of minority language planning will be considered, but we
particularly welcome abstracts addressing the following themes:

-        Language Planning at the Micro and Meso Levels

-        Comparative analysis of minority language communities

-        The challenge of prioritisation in small language planning

-        The discursive bias and minority language communities

-        The need for complementary efforts in language planning

-        Sociological theory and minority language sustainability
-        Challenges to minority language diversity and post-modern culture

Deadline forNovember 20, 2015. Please e-mail abstracts as Word documents
to  soillseconference2016 at gmail.com with ‘Abstract Submission’ in the
subject line and your name and affiliation in the body of the e-mail.
