Fifth International Conference on Language Contact in Times of Globalization
After 4 inspiring meetings in Groningen (The Netherlands) and Greifswald (Germany), the ‘Fifth International Conference on Language Contact in Times of Globalization’ will be held at the University of Klagenfurt (Austria) from September 09 – 10, 2021, hosted by the University of Klagenfurt (Austria) and organized by the linguistics section of the English Department. As in the previous meetings, the conference language is English. The programme is open to contributions from all types of language constellations in which contact occurs. We warmly invite paper presentations from all areas of interest in language contact including the full range of socio-cultural and cognitive perspectives.
Klagenfurt, which due to the pandemic will now be a virtual conference venue, is located in Austria’s southernmost region of Carinthia which is linguistically characterized by its vicinity and interchange with Romance (Italian, Friulian) and Slavic languages, and is home to autochthonous Slovene speaking communities.
We look forward to meeting you at the online conference.
