Symposium Theme: Crossing Borders: South, North, East, West

The symposium theme will focus on the interconnections (and fissures) across disciplinary, epistemological and geographical spaces in sociolinguistics at the present time and in relation to (re)situating current key developments (such as the “multilingual turn” and “superdiversity”).


The Symposium will be using rooms within the Owen G. Glenn Building, and the Arts Building.
