Interests and Power in Language Management

Building upon various approaches in Language Policy and Planning, particularly Language Management Theory, the Fifth Language Management Symposium welcomes papers highlighting interests and power in language management.

Time: 12-14.9.2017

Place: University of Regensburg

Contact: Prof. Marek Nekula -

Interests and power have been long acknowledged as important factors in various approaches in Language Policy and Planning (LPP). Despite this fact, they have been devoted little focused attention compared to other factors such as motivation in or goals of LPP. Though the foundational paper of Language Management Theory published by B. H. Jernudd and J. V. Neustupný in 1987, entitled “Language planning: for whom?”, was devoted to the issue of interests, this topic has not been taken up and elaborated upon even in this LPP research tradition. The aim of this symposium, therefore, is to focus on the themes of interests and power and discuss their role and use in language management.
