Continuing the series of successful symposia, we are happy to announce the fourth Current Trends in Linguistics Conference (CuTLi), to be held from the 10th to the 11th of July 2020 at the University of Hamburg. This year’s conference theme – Global Dialect Laboratories in Multilingual Ecologies – focusses on the development of English around the world, especially in urban and densely populated multilingual territories. Contributions to the conference will explore the status, variability, and development of English in such urban multilingual settings. We invite papers and posters from the areas of multilingual development, language acquisition, language contact, and World Englishes. CuTLi serves as a forum that is open to original and unconventional approaches, aiming to facilitate a fruitful discussion and exchange of ideas. In particular, we wish to give young researchers (Bachelor’s, Master’s, and PhD students) the opportunity to present their research and receive feedback from an expert audience and well-known scholars in the field.
