LANGSCAPE & ENROPE Colloquium kicked off successfully!

On June 17, 2022 the very first LANGSCAPE and ENROPE Colloquium was kicked off with great success! We welcomed around 30 participants and enjoyed a 3-hour online programme including two wonderful presentations by Maria Gonzáles Davies from Universitat Ramon Llull, Barcelona (“The integrated plurilingual approach (IPA): Taking research to the classrooms”) and by Tian Yan from the University of Exeter (“Between monolingual policy and multilingual reality in South China: English learners’ and teachers’ perceptions and experience of language awareness, translation and translanguaging”).

After the presentations and a lively discussion, the Special Interest Groups (SIGs) worked together in breakout rooms. All SIGs developed great ideas and two of them already agreed upon contact persons and concrete next steps. The third group is in the process and will follow shortly.

Here is a short overview of the established Special Interest Groups:

1) Research methodology and ethics (contact persons: Paulette van der Voet, Tian Yan)
2) Language policies (contact persons: Ozan Varli, Andrew McDouall, Robin Breit)
3) Language teacher development (provisional contact person: Tomáš Kos)

We will shortly send out more information on the SIGs’ activities and modes of collaboration.

The LANGSCAPE & ENROPE Online Colloquium continues …

The dates for the next LANGSCAPE & ENROPE Online Colloquiums are as follows:

  • Sep 16th, 2022 from 9-13h (CEST)

AILA (Lyon 2023): Call for Abstract opening soon

The official submission platform (https://aila2023.fr/call-for-papers/) for the symposium ‘Changing communities, changing worldviews: Rethinking migration and learning languages other than English’. will open shortly. The deadline for abstract submission is 3 July, 2022. 

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.
