First Conference on Language Contact in Times of Globalization



University of Groningen, September 28-30, 2006



Deadline for abstracts is February 1, 2006


The aim of the Groningen conference is to explore the linguistic effects of globalization and migration in societies all over the world. We particularly invite papers adressing the conference theme, but in order to put these issues in a broader historical and theoretical perspective, we also welcome papers on other current issues in the study of language contact and language change.


Scholars are invited to submit abstracts for 40-minute papers (including 10 minute discussion time). Deadline for abstracts is February 1, 2006. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by March 1. If you require earlier notification, let us know, and we will send you our reply at an earlier date (though not before January 1, 2006).


Invited speakers:


Kurt Braunmüller, Universität Hamburg

Pieter Muysken, University of Nijmegen

Ricardo Otheguy, CUNY (New York)
