8th Linguistic Landscapes International Workshop

The 8th Linguistic Landscapes International Workshop will take place at the University of Liverpool from Wednesday, 27 to Friday, 29 April 2016.

The workshop will focus on the theme of “Regeneration, Revitalisation, Reterritorialisation”. These terms are especially pertinent descriptors of Liverpool, which has undergone a period of significant change since the start of the millennium.
The “LL8” moniker is a particularly poignant reminder of the 1981 Toxteth Riots, which for many have come to symbolise the destitution and anger associated with the final chapters of Britain’s industrial era.
The Toxteth postcode, L8, also covers the University campus, where our ongoing institutional regeneration is constituent to the reterritorialisation of Liverpool as a whole.

The workshop will consist of a series of non-parallel paper presentations and discussion slots (approximately 30 in number).

Abstract submission will run from the end of August until the end of November 2015.  Notification of acceptance will be sent to contributors in early January 2016.
See call for papers for more advice on submissions.

Social activities
As in previous years, the programme will include a conference dinner on the evening of Thursday, 28 April.
An optional social event will also take place on Saturday, 30 April.
Details of social events will be publicised when available.

LL8 will take place on the University of Liverpool’s central campus, which is located between the city’s iconic Anglican and Metropolitan cathedrals, and in our Liverpool city centre at a venue to be advised.
See Visiting the University for directions and campus maps.

Practical advice
Advice on registration and accommodation will be available nearer to the time of the conference.
