    Papers and abstracts

    By bringing together scholars who work from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives, as well as representing a wide range of languages, the conference also aims to stimulate and further our theoretical understanding of the conditions that exist between different (national) varieties of the same language and how nation and culture is constructed in and through language.
