Globalising Sociolinguistics. Challenging the Anglo-Western nature of Sociolinguistics and expanding theories

This conferences addresses mismatches between mainstream sociolinguistic models and non-Anglo-Western sociolinguistic settings. Papers are invited on sociolinguistic issues, from various areas in the world, which challenge or expand mainstream theories. Both theoretical and empirical contributions are welcome. Papers will explore sociolinguistic settings in various regions, focusing on difficulties in applying common theory in the region in question, or the need to expand theory. In so doing, the conference hopes to lay bare the nature and the mechanisms related to the named bias and arrive at a more comprehensive understanding of sociolinguistic issues around the world.

Pragmatic Perspectives on Networked L2 Discourse, 26-31 July 2015, Antwerp, Belgium

The panel 'Pragmatic perspectives on networked L2 discourse' will examine and discuss the interplay between structural choice, function and context in the practice of interactional second/foreign language (L2) use in Web 2.0, the second-generation web. Web 2.0 has dramatically changed L2 practice. By connecting people, Web 2.0 facilitates multilingual encounters in virtual community spaces where people can interact with others in the language(s) of their choice.

The Digital Agora of Social Media. 26-Jul-2015 - 31-Jul-2015, Antwerp, Belgium

The present day participative Internet, Web 2.0, is often conceived as a space for the public exposure of one’s private life. This panel aims to adopt another perspective on Web 2.0. The focus is on how users contribute to public discussions, i.e., take part in the mediated public sphere. The internet and social media consist of spaces of digital agora where social actors cross and blur the boundaries between the public and private spheres, institutions, and everyday life.

Language has been a very important issue for our border region because of the conflict, in the sense of conflict of identities and national affiliations.
