CfP: The 13th Linguistic Landscape Workshop: “Semiotic landscapes in educational spaces”
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 from 7-9 September 2022 at
Universität Hamburg, Germany. We currently envisage an on-site event in Hamburg. Streaming
possibilities for keynotes and selected sessions are considered, subject to technical feasibility.
The conference theme – “Semiotic landscapes in educational spaces” – aims to showcase
interdisciplinary connections between linguistic landscape studies, language and literacy learning,
and language teacher education. It covers research on 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
Keynotes (in alphabetical order):
- David Malinowski, San Jose State University, USA
