Changing communities, changing worldviews: Rethinking migration and learning languages other than English
Alice Chik (Macquarie University) and Danping Wang (University of Auckland)
Abstract The dynamics of population movement, linguistic diversity, and language education shape and change our worldviews. How does migration and mobility change place-based understanding of linguistic diversity? How do diversifying linguistic patterns impact languages education? And how are worldviews impacted by widening linguistic diversity? And how to integrate diverse epistemological perspectives into our efforts to reinvigorate students’ passion for the learning of languages other than English? This symposium adopts interdisciplinary approaches to examine the dynamics between changing demography, linguistic diversity, and worldviews.
