2nd call for papers LIDIL no. 66

2ème appel à contributions
LIDIL numéro 66


“Le paramètre temporel dans le développement langagier : implications didactiques et pédagogiques”

Ce numéro entend recueillir des contributions prenant appui sur des données de terrain et débouchant sur des implications didactiques et pédagogiques concrètes à des fins d’enseignement et d’apprentissage des langues. Les auteur.e.s sont particulièrement encouragé.e.s à faire des recommandations d’ordre praxéologique sur des aspects didactiques (choix de contenus, organisation, déconstruction, présentation) ou pédagogiques (pratiques de médiation, attention aux dimensions intra- et inter-personnelles, ainsi qu’aux caractéristiques individuelles). De même, l’intérêt que nous prêtons au paramètre temporel nous incite à nous projeter dans l’avenir et à nous interroger quant à des pistes de travail ou des éléments tangibles à envisager pour structurer une feuille de route pour la didactique des langues et des cultures du futur.

Dates importantes :
05 juin 2021 : dernier délai pour la réception des propositions (3 pages).
15 juillet 2021 : notification d’acceptation ou de refus des propositions.

Announcement and Call for Papers: Colloque international “La désuétude au carrefour des savoirs : De la langue à la culture”

Dear LANGSCAPE members, colleagues, and friends,

Prof. Nadia Ben Elazmia from the University Moulay Ismail in Meknès, Marocco, has sent an announcement of an interdisciplinary colloquium on “La désuétude au carrefour des savoirs : De la langue à la culture” to the LANGSCAPE office. Of course, we gladly share it with you.

The colloquium will take place from 29th to 30th October 2020 and will focus on the processes leading to the disuse of words, expressions, and cultural pracitices rendering them obsolete in definite linguistic groups. Researchers from various disciplines are welcome to examine these phenomena along three strands: A) lexical, B) cultural and C) formal. Strand B (Axe culturelle) has as one of its potential focal areas the discontinuation of educational pracites and teaching methods (“la désuétude des méthodes pédagogiques et de l’enseignement”).

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 30th April 2020.
