This will be the first academic symposium fully devoted to the subject of language attitudes toward Portuguese, Spanish, and the languages that co-exist with these throughout the world. Fifty years of research on language attitudes have been enhanced by the contributions of Hispanic and Lusophone sociolinguists working with attitudes toward the languages in the Hispanic and the Lusophone world, as attested by the increase in the quantity and the quality of publications on the subject in local and international academic journals. This symposium will provide us with the opportunity to spend two full days dedicated to an update on the current status of our sub-discipline and to set our future direction.
