Dear colleagues

You're warmly invited to submit papers to the following:

Symposium on the Politics of Language Policy at the Local Level

Date: 22 September 2017
Time: 9:00 AM - 7:00 PM
Venue: SOAS University of London

Call for papers
Language Policy is highly political and often controversial, with official top-down policy criticized by scholars for serving dominant political interests and reproducing unequal power relations.

This one-day symposium aims to move the discussion forwards by treating Language Policy as a dynamic socio-cultural process. Accordingly, we invite papers that explore the politics of Language Policy at the local level. In particular, we welcome papers that:

- Reflect on the ways in which communities interpret, negotiate and resist official Language Policy
- Examine interactions between various policy stakeholders
- Explore how local language practices and unofficial community-level policies can further the political aims and agendas of minority communities
- Consider the role of language ideologies in determining Language Policy outcomes

The symposium encourages interdisciplinary discussion and we welcome submissions from fields such as: Linguistic Anthropology, Sociolinguistics, Education Studies, Political Science, Endangered Language Studies and Migration Studies.

Submission of abstracts
The deadline for submissions is Friday 14th July 2017, 12:00 midnight.

Presentations will last 30 minutes in total, with 20 minutes for the talk and 10 minutes for discussion. Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words, not including any references. Each author is limited to a single abstract, including co-authored submissions. Please email your submission, including your name and affiliation, to lpp at soas.ac.uk<mailto:lpp at soas.ac.uk>
