Globalisation and migration are two of the most important phenomena in the early 21st century and bring with them a number of opportunities and challenges, not least in terms of how people communicate and learn in new environments, both real and online. As a result of the rise in the movement of people and in interconnectivity more generally, an already multilingual world is becoming even more multilingual. How people use and develop their linguistic repertoires has been the subject of much scholarly attention. Less attention has been paid, however, to the ways in which people identify themselves and are identified by others as multilingual.
This conference brings together researchers in applied linguistics, sociolinguistics, modern languages and education studies to explore multilingualism and identity from a variety of perspectives, with the aim of creating new synergies.
The call for papers closed on 4 February (GMT: 11:59 pm) 2019. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by Monday 4 March 2019. Only those with successful submissions will be contacted.
Please note that booking for this event is now closed.
