Langscape survey for young researchers

Dear Langscape members and friends,

Here is good news for all of you who are working on a Master, PhD or Postdoc project that deals with Langscape issues such as plurilingualism, identity or CLIL: We are currently preparing an Erasmus+ application (Strategic Partnership Program) which will – if granted – allow us to offer beginning researchers much more support and opportunities for collaboration.

Our initiative aims at establishing regular summer schools and other sustainable structures for international collaboration (e.g. virtual winter schools, online workshops, opportunities for research exchanges or joint publications), not only on the level of methods and methodology, but also as a way to work together on closely related topics.

In order to come up with a truly convincing application we need to collect some information about our potential target group – i.e.: you! We need to know what kind of (post)doctoral support you already receive and what kind of international collaboration you think could be beneficial for you. We would thus like to invite you to take part in our online survey:

https://umfrage.hu-berlin.de/index.php/survey/index/sid/312213/newtest/Y/lang/en

The survey will be open until June 30 and can be completed in 5-10 minutes. In case you have questions please do not hesitate to get back to me.

You are also welcome to pass on this email to other (Langscape) researchers who might be interested in the kind of collaboration we are aiming at.

Kind regards,

Katrin Schultze

(for the Erasmus+ application team)

Looking back at 2016 and forth to 2017

Dear Langscape friends and colleagues,

The year 2016 has been a year full of activities in many fields within our network. Besides having our regular annual meeting, we could define new and interesting research projects, develop teaching collaborations and ideas for doctoral support and, last but not least, take a big step forward towards an increased visibility of our network in terms of publishing and publications, especially by pushing forward the creation of our own e-journal.

We would like to thank every one in the network very warmly who contributed to make all this possible. As a network Lanscape is built on shared interests in language research and language education. This is, however, only one part of the story as Langscape would not be what it is without the mutual trust, sympathy, and the commitment we have to collaborate across borders of national and academic cultures. This is why your contributions to Langscape are so valuable and worthwhile of every minute of your time and each grain of your energy.

Looking also at the bigger picture, we have seen many human and political tragedies recently that have directly or indirectly affected our lives and our work. Cities where we work and travel have experienced acts of violence through which people lost their lives or were severely injured. In many societies exclusionist ideologies are on the rise and protectionist policies find a growing audience supporting them. As a consequence, civil rights, which are the essence of open and liberal societies, have come under severe pressure almost everywhere. Under these conditions, languages are not a panacea but languages matter as an important foundation of people’s capability of encountering and understanding each other and as a means to generate and foster social cohesion. Here, Langscape has a contribution to make. May the coming year, despite the times being what they are, be a year of encouragement, optimism, and hope.

Best wishes from Berlin

Lutz & Stephan

Announcement: Change of personnel – Farewell to Bettina Kaiser, introducing Florian Möller

Dear Langscape members,

This post announces a change in personnel among the Langscape coordination. First of all, I would like to introduce myself to all of you. My name is Florian Möller. Currently, I work for the Foreign Language Education section of the department of English and American Studies at Humboldt-University in Berlin. So far, the focus of my work has been to administer the department’s literature. Yet, I have now been given the opportunity to extend my field of work and will in future take over from Bettina Kaiser assisting the Langscape coordinators.

Sadly, this leads me to one of my first duties, which is to bid Bettina Kaiser farewell. As far as my still rather limited Langscape experience tells me her excellent, constructive and precise work in assisting and organizing the coordination of Langscape will be missed by all of us. Yet, other projects await her and I heartily wish her continued success in all her future efforts. Thank you for the good work, Bettina! In order to let Bettina write a few words as well I would like to hand over the metaphorical pen to her:

Changing the identity of “I”, I, Bettina, would like to use this paragraph to express my gratitude in having been able to work with and for all of you. It has been a great pleasure to get to know you and I thank Florian for taking over. To cut a long story short: thank you for your continued trust in my abilities and to all of you the utmost success in shaping Langscape’s future and vision.

Best wishes,

Bettina Kaiser

Save the date: Langscape Conference and BoD-Meeting in Leeuwarden from 12-14 Oct., 2017

The 2017 Langscape Conference and Board of Director’s meeting will be held from 12-14 October, 2017 in Leeuwarden, Frisland (NL). We would like to thank Cor van der Meer and the Mercator European Research Centre on Multilingualism and Language Learning (a divison of the Fryske Academy) very warmly for hosting both events.

The conference will be titled “Multilingualism and Minorities” to reflect the special focus of the Mercator Research Centre on research related to regional and minority languages throughout Europe and beyond.

One session within the conference will be dedicated to “VUM and Language Pedagogy”, which will be the follow-up session for the VUM project (Vitality of Urban Multilingualism) kicked-off at this year’s Langscape conference in Berlin in July. All langscape members and the local VUM research groups in Augsburg, Berlin, Brussels, Istanbul, and London are particularly invited to present their work in this special-topic strand.

Last but not least, we are again planning for a doctoral seminar to take place in conjunction with the conference to give our junior researchers an opportunity to present and discuss their work in progress with us.

Please save the date for the upcoming Langscape Conference and BoD-Meeting from 12-14 Oct., 2017 in Leeuwarden.
