The 2018 Langscape Symposium and Board of Directors’ meeting will be held from 18th to 20th April 2018 at the Blanquerna-Universitat Ramon Llull in Barcelona. We would like to thank Maria González-Davies very warmly for hosting both events.
The symposium will be titled
“Towards Meaningful Plurilingual Innovation: Connecting Research and Informed Practices”
The main focus will be on questions of meaningful plurilingual practices in learning and teaching contexts, viewed from and appealing to diverse international perspectives.
Professor Jim Cummins, University of Toronto, Canada has already agreed to deliver a keynote and to give a presentation investigating the link between language and education. A further section of the symposium will concentrate on the connection of neuroscience and languages.
Following our established practice, we are again planning for a doctoral seminar to take place in conjunction with the symposium to give junior researchers an opportunity to present and discuss their work with us.
Please save the date for the upcoming Langscape Symposium and BoD-Meeting from 18-20 April, 2018 in Barcelona.
