Save the date!

On December 13, 2013 – which is a Friday, btw – Humboldt-University will host a symposium of the AILA Research Network “Sociocultural Theory and Emergentism”. The symposium will be organised by Lutz Küster and Stephan Breidbach.


What is the ReN about?

This ReN aims at bringing Sociocultural and Dynamics Systems Theory (and what in German would be Bildungstheorie) together to find a new and more integrated theoretical and methodological approach to second/further language learning and use. Besides trying to describe and explain language acquisition more comprehensively, issues of learner identities rank high on the list.


Want to attend or present?

For general information about the ReN “Sociocultural Theory and Emergentism” please contact its convenor, Jean-Paul Narcy-Combes, at “”

Anyone interested in attending the symposium on Dec. 13 in Berlin or submitting a proposal for a paper please send an e-mail to either Lutz Küster at “” or to Stephan Breidbach at “”. There will be a more detailed CfP shortly.
