The Linguistic Landscapes of Beirut project (LLB) was a multilingual spatial humanities mapping project. Linguistic Landscape studied document and analyze how multilingualism is expressed in a written manner in public space. The LLB project brought together some 2000 written language samples from the greater Beirut area captured in 2015/16. Some of the project’s image data is mapped here.
Our article “Digital Spatial Practices and Linguistic Landscaping in Beirut” on LLB appeared in ILCEA Revue de l’Institut des langues et cultures d’Europe, Amérique, Afrique, Asie et Australie.
The LLB project was featured in an article in the Arabic-language daily al-Sharq al-Awsat.
