We welcome papers, discussion sessions, colloquia, and poster presentations on a wide variety of topics related to language policy scholarship; see the Call for Papers webpage for complete information.

Additionally, we plan to propose an edited volume in the Journal of Belonging, Identity, Language and Diversity - J-BILD that compiles high quality papers from LPP2020 conference presenting critical perspectives on the future of the field.
