About this event

Conference Aim

The aim of this conference is to examine the societal challenges or critical socio-cultural condition faced by many endangered vernacular minority language groups. The conference will focus particularly on policies and initiatives aimed at reframing language policy and planning approaches through the enhancement of community engagement and the empowerment of speaker groups in their own contexts. Placing the existing community of speakers at the heart of language policy initiatives within the context of socio-economic revival will be key for developing credible language policy. The University of the Highlands and Islands is organising this conference in Stornoway, in the Western Isles, to facilitate the participation of community members and activists in our discussions, and to encourage the exchange of a diverse range of viewpoints.
