 LIB 2016




                                 Organising Committee:
Kinga Kozminska, Leonie Schulte, Dr Nancy Hawker, Dr Stephen Leonard

A 2-day linguistic anthropology conference will take place at the University of Oxford in April 2016. The conference will bring together leading scholars and graduates in linguistic anthropology and related fields in order to explore the relationship between languages and senses of belonging. Focus will be placed on the indexical character of language in the modern, changing world as manifest in communicative practices that are impacted by social, political and economic processes that bring different languages or forms of language into contact. Participants in four dedicated conference panels will examine how global, state, local and institutional aspects of belonging are indexed through language, how these levels can be distinguished from one another, and how linguistic anthropology and sociolinguistics can account for related linguistic transformations.

Registration for the conference will begin in February 2016.
