Descripción
We are happy to announce that the workshop Romance grammars, context and contact (RGCC2021), hosted at the University of Birmingham, will take place online on 24-26 March 2021.

 

This online workshop will bring together scholars with expertise in Romance morphosyntactic variation, working at different interfaces (generative, sociolinguistics, dialectology, and language contact), alongside scholars and stakeholders working on language ideologies, language policy/planning and language documentation.

 

Call for papers

We invite abstracts for 20-minute presentations on any aspect of Romance grammatical variation in the context of migration, multilingualism, contact, language oppression and/or other social and material contextual factors in relation to Romance linguistic communities and/or their language practices.

 

We are particularly interested in receiving contributions which draw together, or offer comparative or interdisciplinary perspectives on, questions of morphosyntactic variation, language contact and language ideologies in relation to non-standard(ized), contested, oppressed or minoritized Romance or Romance-related varieties.

 

The workshop, which forms part of the project https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url... target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" data-saferedirecturl="The" target="_blank">https://www.google.com/url?q=https://url...
