Conference Theme

The Department of Linguistics and the Centre for Multilingualism and Diversities Research at the University of the Western Cape will be hosting the next LSSA/SAALA/SAALT Conference from 4-7 July 2016. The Conference theme is:Language and Linguistics in the Global South: Posing the challenge.Within the current context of demands for radical changes to academic content and access at our universities, it seems particularly pertinent to encourage delegates to respond in their abstract submissions to issues of decoloniality and southern theory in linguistic research and teaching.

However, any interesting papers, workshops, special thematic session and poster presentation in the following fields are welcome:

• Applied Linguistics

• Language Practice

• Language Teaching

• Linguistics

• Sign Language

• Sociolinguistics

• Multilingualism

• Discourse Analysis

• Linguistic Landscapes
