Globalization has caused the displacement and movement of speakers of Spanish into different geographical spaces across the globe. As a result, these speakers have come into contact both with speakers of other varieties of Spanish and with speakers of other languages.

In North America, there is an established network of scholars conducting research on the sociolinguistic outcomes of these contact situations, in which both speakers and their languages are involved. By contrast, only little and scattered work has examined the sociolinguistic outcomes of these contacts in European localities, despite the fact that the modern displacement and movements of speakers of Spanish into different geographical European spaces dates back to the 1960s for people from Spain and to the 1970s for people of Latin American origin. As a result, it is an understudied topic and there is no specific platform in which researchers working on it can regularly share their findings with colleagues, create networks with them and, eventually, set the foundations of collaborative research projects. This conference intends to bring together, for the first time, researchers working on the sociolinguistic outcomes of the presence of speakers of Spanish in different European spaces.
