Information about submissions
BHL is a biannual conference (Leiden 2015, Tallahassee (Florida) 2017) that brings together researchers working on different aspects of bilingualism in the Hispanic and Lusophone world to share new insights regarding methodology and extend and strengthen the dialogue on furthering our understanding of bilingualism. Hence, 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 hope to be able to share new insights regarding methodology and get a better understanding of bilingualism.
We invite abstracts for 20-minute talks (plus 10 minutes for discussion) and posters in any area related to bilingualism, including theoretical linguistics, sociolinguistics, language contact, second language and bilingual acquisition, heritage languages, and psycholinguistics. The abstracts should be anonymous, written in English, Spanish or Portuguese and should be a maximum of 300 words in length. Please indicate whether you would like your abstract to be considered for a talk, a poster or both. Notification of acceptance will be sent mid October.
