Youth Language: Multilingualism in a Global Context

We are happy to announce the 9th International Conference on Youth Languages, which will be held on May 23–25, 2019 at Leiden University, The Netherlands. We invite anyone working in the field of youth languages to present ongoing research, discuss future collaborations, and engage in networking activities.

Youth languages, sometimes labelled as Urban Youth Languages or Contemporary Urban Vernaculars, are global phenomena. Focusing on the thematic orientation “Youth Language: Multilingualism in a Global Context” this conference invites papers on theoretical or empirical issues in written and spoken manifestations of youth language from any part of the world including the attitudes and ideologies related to them. As a continuation of the previous conferences, papers on regional varieties, digital communication, and language use in didactic contexts are also welcome.

Please note that the deadline for the submission of abstracts has expired.
