In February 2015 the book "Globalising Sociolinguistics" will be published by Routledge.
This conference will also celebrate the publication of the Routledge volume ‘Globalising Sociolinguistics’, which is to appear early 2015. This volume contains 19 chapters – written by 27 authors, from all continents – describing the sociolinguistic situations in various regions and speech communities in the world. Each chapter describes a number of mismatches between mainstream sociolinguistic theory and the situation in the specific region/community. A number of authors will be present at the conference.
The organisers aim to publish a number of original conference papers in an international peer reviewed journal, so as to continue the work achieved in the Routledge volume.
