Call for Papers: The 13th Linguistic Landscape Workshop

The annual Linguistic Landscape Workshop is the leading international meeting for interdisciplinary research on language in public space. Previous editions have been held in Gothenburg (online 2021), Bangkok (2019), Bern (2018), Liverpool (2017), Luxembourg (2016), Berkeley (2015), and elsewhere.

The 13th Linguistic Landscape Workshop (LL13) will take place on 7–9 September 2022 at Universität Hamburg, Germany. We currently envisage an on-site event in Hamburg. Streaming of keynotes and selected sessions is considered, subject to technical feasibility.

Conference theme: “Semiotic landscapes in educational spaces”

This year’s Workshop will focus on interdisciplinary connections between linguistic landscape studies, language and literacy learning, and language teacher education. It includes research on the practices and discourses surrounding the semiotic landscape of educational spaces (schoolscapes) and on the linguistic/semiotic landscape as a resource for language and literacy learning and teaching. As always, papers from the entire range of linguistic landscape studies are also welcome.
