*Call for Papers*

*Multilingual landscapes: planning, policy, and contact linguistic
The University of Manchester
21-22 May 2018

Abstracts are invited for a two-day workshop on 'Multilingual landscapes:
planning, policy, and contact linguistic perspectives', hosted by The
University of Manchester's Multilingual Manchester research unit.

The purpose of the workshop is to explore multilingual signage in urban and
rural spaces from the particular perspectives of policy, planning, and
contact linguistics. Key guiding questions which we wish to address are:

   - How can multilingual LLs be accommodated in a general account of a
   community’s multilingual practices?
   - In what way do they reflect different levels of policy in relation to
   diversity management?
   - How can the study of multilingual LLs serve as an instrument and a
   guide for the planning of language provisions and to support accessibility
   of services?

Abstracts are invited that address these and closely related questions,
framed explicitly in the context of contact linguistics and/or planning and
policy. We expect to be able to accept up to 12 papers. Abstracts of around
300 words should be sent to mlm at manchester.ac.uk – please include ‘LL
Workshop Abstract’ in the subject heading – by 1 September 2017.
