Sociolinguistics Summer School is an annual international meeting point organised by and directed to MA and PhD students and early career researchers. SSS provides them a great opportunity to both attend plenary lectures and workshops conducted by leading researchers in the field and to present and discuss their own findings with fellow ECR’s.
Traditionally organised in England, Scotland and Ireland, the 7th edition of SSS disembarked for the first time on the continent to take place in Lyon in 2016. For 2017, the IdentiCat research group of the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) offered to host SSS8 in Barcelona as part of the activities of the ISCH COST Action IS1306 New Speakers in a Multilingual Europe. Newspeakerness in relation to globalisation, management of multilingualism, and social identity will be the core theme of the SSS8, although presentations about all the current trends in sociolinguistics will be welcomed.
We look forward to welcome you in Barcelona!
