The Department of Foreign Languages at Towson University announces a conference, ''Forging Linguistic Identities'' to be held on March 14-16, 2019 and invites proposals for papers. The conference seeks to examine language as socially embedded within historical and geo-political contexts.

Call for Papers included here for reference:

Possible topics might include, but not be limited to:

- Dialects/diglossia and their role in group identity formation
- The standardization of national and/or majority language(s) and its impact on national or regional politics
- Multi-lingualism and its negotiation and practice by the communities of use.
- Use(s) of indigenous languages under transnational states
- National reception of dialect/minority-language literature and verbal culture
- Migration
- Translation studies

The scope of the conference is not limited by region, language, or time period. Proposals involving languages taught by the Department of Foreign Languages (Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Ancient Greek, Biblical and Modern Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish) are especially encouraged. Proposals are welcomed across disciplines, from scholars of languages and literatures, education, geography, history, psychology and sociology.
