The Mercator Research Centre, the SOAS World Languages Institute (UK), the Interdisciplinary Centre for Social and Language Documentation and the Zentrum für Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft cordially invite you to join the International Conference on “Big Cities, Small Languages”.

The conference will take place on November 14-16 2018 in Berlin, Germany.

“Big Cities, Small Languages” should be a forum of exchange of information that includes the following topics:

* How do small languages fare in multilingual urban contexts?
* How do big cities deal with small languages? How are they recognized in political representation, in the school system, and generally, in the culture of the cities?
* How do speakers of small languages consider their own linguistic situation?
* How do the languages influence each other, which forms of code switching and creolization can we observe?
