Sociolinguistics Circle & meeting description
The Sociolinguistics Circle is an annual one day conference organised by a group of scholars working in the Low Countries (their names are appended below). The aim of the conference is to convene students and researchers of language variation, sociolinguistics and linguistic anthropology/ethnography who have (some) connection to the Low Countries.
Particular emphasis is put on student participation: the conference is open to researchers of all levels, and this year we warmly invite BA & MA-students to submit their work. Students who wish to discuss work in progress can submit their work for poster presentation
After successful editions in Groningen and Ghent, we are happy to announce that the third edition will be hosted by the Centre for Language Studies of the Radboud University Nijmegen.
