12th Linguistic Landscape Workshop

The political economy of language and space/place

In the last years, there has been a strong drive within LL-studies to ‚go beyond the signs‘, which often has been interpreted as talking to the producers, owners and readers of signs to learn more about how they conceptualize the value and meaning of signs and languages. The 12th Linguistic Landscape Workshop invites you to take a closer look at the political, economic and technological structures and processes that regulate the production, circulation and consumption of semiotic resources in and about places. A political economic perspective on language allows us to conceptualise the differential valorisation of semiotic resources in particular spaces and places. This is important since different language hierarchies and regimes prevail in different spatiotemporal contexts, resulting in varied (in)visibility and (im)mobility for individual semiotic resources.
