We have seen the research subjects getting more diverse in our RC25 community on language and society for these years. We think we should seek and keep a common ground in order to maintain our community strong as well as diverse. This is why we decide to invite two significant colleagues and ask them to provide their view on studying the relationships between language and society.

Roland Terborg, National Autonomous University of Mexico, has dedicated himself to socio-linguistics and other related researches in Mexico for decades. He will present his insight on linguistic and cultural diversity in connection to migration.

Celine-Marie Pascale, American University, is a leading scholar in the field of language and society. Her research on the relationship between language and inequalities has won national and international awards. She will present on confronting the politics of disinformation..

We believe their speech provide us with the common base to start our collective research activities.
