A research group at the university KU Leuven is hosting a bimonthly seminar series on issues of linguistic justice, as well as a conference on Authority, Power and Language from 18-19 October 2022, at the University of Limerick, in Ireland.
“How should linguistic diversity be regulated by democratic political institutions? Which principles of justice should be applied by political institutions in the domain of language?”
“Answering these questions is the goal of debates of linguistic justice, where concerns about language rights, duties or the value of language are at the forefront of discussion.”
“The aim of this international research group is to promote the coordination of all the research carried out by scholars working on language, politics and ethics and disseminate them both in the academic and the public arena.”
