As co-convenors, we are pleased to invite you to participate in the Sociolinguistics Symposium 22 to be held 27-30 June 2018 in the Owen G Glenn Building, University of Auckland, New Zealand.
Since its inception at West Midlands College in the UK in 1976, the biennial Sociolinguistics Symposium series has become the key academic forum in its field. It is a demonstrably international conference, attracting delegates from across the globe, and has consistently been at the forefront of academic developments in sociolinguistics.
As such, it seems highly appropriate that, in 2018, SS22 will be hosted by the University of Auckland, New Zealand, the first time that the Sociolinguistics Symposium has been outside of both Europe and the Northern Hemisphere.
The SS22 theme will focus on the interconnections (and fissures) across disciplinary, epistemological and geographical spaces in sociolinguistics at the present time and in relation to (re)situating current key developments (such as the multilingual turn and superdiversity).
We welcome all past Sociolinguistics Symposium participants and, hopefully, new participants as well to SS22 in Auckland, New Zealand.
