Abstracts are invited for an inter-disciplinary conference on “Rethinking Language and Community: Diversity in Global Settings”, which will take place on 16 and 17 May 2019 at The University of Manchester.

The purpose of this conference is to explore and discuss different and new ways of understanding ‘community’ in its relationship with language, and to critically assess the notion’s relevance in times of superdiversity. We aim to bring together PhD students and early career researchers working on the topic or related aspects from across disciplines, including language, linguistics, literary and cultural studies, film/media studies, area studies, migration studies, human geography, ethnography and anthropology.

Abstracts of 250-300 words (excluding bibliography) should be sent to mlm@manchester.ac.uk by 22 March 2019. Please use ‘Community Conference 2019’ in the subject heading and include authors’ names, affiliation and contact details in your abstract.
