X-SCAPES: 10th Linguistic Landscape Workshop

The Linguistic Landscape Workshop is well established as the world’s premier gathering of scholars investigating the intersection of language, communication and space/place. (This scientific field is also sometimes known by the labels “semiotic landscapes” and/or “geosemiotics”.) Researchers come from a wide range of language-related disciplines; most notably, applied linguistics, multilingualism studies, sociolinguistics, discourse studies, and linguistic anthropology. In all this work, scholars recognize how linguistic and communicative practice can only be properly understood in the context of its emplacement. By the same token, we recognize how the physical location and public visibility of different ways of speaking/communicating have deep social, political implications. The nine previous gatherings of the Linguistic Landscape Workshop were in Tel Aviv, Siena, Strasbourg, Addis Ababa, Namur (Belgium), Cape Town, Berkeley, Liverpool and Luxembourg.
