Language and Super-diversity: Explorations and interrogations

June 5-7, 2013

The aim of this international conference is to investigate the perspective and potential offered by super-diversity to language study – to, for example, linguistics, sociolinguistics, sociology of language, linguistic anthropology, applied linguistics, discourse studies, new literacy studies, pragmatics, ethnography and multi-modality.

The conference provides a forum for researchers to explore the forms, processes, practices and effects of super-diversity and the multi-faceted challenge it poses to language study, calling forth a revision of some of its key tools – its theoretical apparata, methods of data gathering and analytic concepts.
The conference is organized by International Consortium on Language and Super-diversity.
