Conference on Authority, Power and Language
Linguistic Justice Society
How should linguistic diversity be regulated by democratic political institutions? Which principles of justice should be applied by political institutions in the domain of language? Answering these questions is the goal of debates of linguistic justice, where concerns about language rights, duties or the value of language are at the forefront of discussion.
Linguistic justice, as a subfield within normative political philosophy, has recently become a real concern for researchers concerned with topics such as diversity and identity in multicultural societies, the increasing predominance of English as a lingua franca, questions of domination and structural linguistic injustices, questions of linguistic recognition in an era of increased mobility, or the role of accents and dialects vis-à-vis standard languages.
