The second international conference on Bilingualism in the Hispanic and Lusophone world (BHL) will take place at Florida State University in Tallahassee (FL) on January 27-29, 2017. The goal of the BHL conference is to bring together researchers working on different aspects of bilingualism in the Hispanic and Lusophone world. Hence, the BHL is dedicated to research in any area related to bilingualism, including theoretical linguistics, sociolinguistics, language contact, second language and bilingual acquisition, heritage languages, communication, education, and psycholinguistics. By bringing together researchers from different perspectives we are able to share new insights regarding methodology and get a better understanding of bilingualism.
The invited speakers for BHL 2017 are: Teresa Bajo (University of Granada), Ana Carvalho (University of Arizona), Luis López (University of Illinois at Chicago), Virginia Mueller Gathercole (Florida International University), Armin Schwegler (University of California Irvine), and Gretchen Sunderman (Florida State University).
