Sociolinguistics Symposium 24

Sociolinguistics Symposium is the world’s main gathering of sociolinguists internationally. This two-yearly event provides a unique opportunity and forum to develop and exchange ideas and research findings about language and society in its manifold connections and manifestations. From its beginnings as a small meeting in the UK in 1976, the tradition of Sociolinguistic Symposia has grown into the largest sociolinguistic networking event in the world. Attracting hundreds of participants and exhibitors, the Symposium is also a stimulating space for networking.

It is with much enthusiasm that we announce Sociolinguistics Symposium 24. SS24 will be held in Ghent in July 2022. In close consultation with previous symposium organizers and our colleagues in Hong Kong, the tradition of a meeting in even years is upheld. SS24 in 2022 will mark the 20th anniversary of the first Sociolinguistics Symposium hosted on the European mainland (SS14 in Ghent in 2002). SS24 is organized by Ghent University in close collaboration with the Belgian sociolinguistic community. The dates of the conference are 13-16 July 2022.
