Approaches to migration, language and identity

04.05.2017 to 06.05.2017

The international conference Approaches to migration, language, and identity, which will be held at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) 4-6 May 2017, aims to bring together scholars working on any aspect of migration, language, and identity. This three-day conference offers a forum for researchers working in the fields of politics, geosciences, linguistics, anthropology, economics, sociology, social (economic, legal) history, literature, and more to gather together and exchange ideas. Both synchronic and diachronic approaches are welcome.

The conference is motivated by the increasing awareness of the importance of interdisciplinary approaches to the study of migration as well as its implications on language, culture, and identity. As such, we want to facilitate a discussion about how issues related to language, migration, and identity impact people’s lives.
