As the first Linguistic Landscape workshop convened in Asia, the theme for this year’s LL XI is, appropriately, “East Meets West: Social Reflection and Integration.” Among the topics welcomed are:

  • LL in diverse parts of the world

  • LL, language contact, and cultural diffusion

  • LL in different domains of language use

  • LL and language policy and planning

  • Contributions of LL to interdisciplinary frameworks

  • Application of LL to real-life problems

  • LL and language proficiency

  • LL and social values, social function, social ideology 

  • LL and identity (gender, religion, etc.)

  • Verbal art in LL

In keeping with recent practice, we interpret “linguistic landscape” broadly to include both language in all its forms along with the non-linguistic, semiotic affordances  that create and convey meaning.

With this in mind, and following the precedent of previous workshops, we invite you to submit your abstract (with keywords) no later than Friday 01 December 2018 – see submission link below. Every paper will be allotted 20 minutes for oral presentation, followed by a 10-minute discussion.

Your abstract should be no more than 300 words, References must be included as a separate pdf file and submitted in the upload area provided:

  • your theoretical framework or core literature is made explicit;

  • you give at least two or three citations with full references;

  • your data/evidence and analytical/interpretive process is clearly stated;

  • you offer five or six keywords.

Your abstracts will be reviewed by our review committee (to be announced) and we expect to confirm acceptance by 21 January.
