This Digithum dossier devoted to the so-called new speakers of minority languages features four articles from presentations given at the "New Speakers: A Concept under Construction" international conference. This open conference took place in Barcelona from 9 to 11 December 2013 and was organized by the Llengua, cultura i identitat en l'era global (Identi.cat) research group.
