The international conference Approaches to migration, language, and identity, which will be held at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) from 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 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.

We are pleased to welcome the following scholars as plenary speakers for our conference:

  • Ofélia Garcia, Professor of Urban Education and of Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian Literatures and Languages, Graduate Center of the City University of New York
  • Li Wei, Professor of Applied Linguistics at the Institute of Education, University College London
  • Ben Rogaly, Professor of Human Geography, University of Sussex
  • Naomi Tadmor, Professor of History, Lancaster University
