After the successful conferences in Antwerp, Vienna, Amsterdam, Turku and Verona, we are now pleased to invite you to the Sixth International Conference on Names in the Economy in Uppsala, Sweden, on 3–5 June 2019, hosted by the Institute for Language and Folklore, together with the Department of Scandinavian Languages at Uppsala University.
The focus at this conference will be the economy or economic aspects hidden or evident in various types of names: how names can hold different values, how names can be used, or misused, to enhance such values, how names can be used in branding, and how names can be a financial means in a global world. Contributions may cover the fields of product names, company names, brand names, place names and all other proper names that are of economic interest.
