ILA Conference

The theme of this year’s ILA conference is… Institutional Discourse!  I’m very much looking forward to seeing the work of my colleagues, but especially the plenary by Dr. Elana Shohamy, pioneering researcher in linguistic landscapes.  I hope to use this conference as an incubator for a project on the linguistic landscapes of frontline centers of government agencies, especially as they are affected and influenced by the DC Language Access Act (a local law providing equal access to government services in languages other than English through interpretation services and translation).  Here’s some more information on the conference, which is running from April 13-15th in the Tribeca neighborhood of NYC.
