Language policy: Lenses, layers, entry points

School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures
Our 2019 conference leads on from our highly successful inaugural conference in 2018 at Sheffield Hallam University, UK, where delegates from over 20 countries met to discuss a diversity of issues in language policy. This year we have another vibrant, diverse, international and interdisciplinary crowd. Non-presenting attendees are welcome as well - welcome all!
THE PROGRAMME IS NOW LIVE!! REGISTER BELOW!!
The local organising committee: Rachel O'Neill (chair), Wilson McLeod, Florence Bonacina-Pugh, Hao Zhang and Mai Nguyen.

Advice panel on writing monographs
In last year's conference we scheduled a panel of journal editors to give advice for prospective authors. This year we're running a similar panel for early career researchers, on the subject of writing monographs. Four experienced monograph authors will give their top tips about the long and winding road of writing, submitting, editing, proofing, and everything in between!
The programme is live! Please click here to see our exciting lineup of speakers and panels!
