Conference Statement 

The Conference on Language and Ecology: Towards a Shared Narrative in Interdisciplinary Research 2019 will take place at Hong Kong Shue Yan University on 5-7 September 2019. Following the ecological theme of last year’s successful conference “The Anthropocene and Beyond: Towards a Shared Narrative in Interdisciplinary Research”, the coming conference focuses on an interdisciplinary approach to research on ecology with a focus on language. The conference will provide a platform for scholars to share their research work and ideas in areas spanning from biocultural diversity, biosemiotics, language ecology, and language acquisition to ecological discourse analysis.
