Dear LANGSCAPE members, colleagues, and friends,
Lately, Dagmar Abendroth-Timmer has kindly forwarded the Call for Papers for the international GLAT congress 2020 in Murica (Spain) to the LANGSCAPE office. Naturally, we are glad to share it with all of you!
The 13th GLAT 2020 congress is organized by and at the Faculty of Letters, University of Murcia. It will take place from May 6th to 8th. The focus of the congress is:
THE CONNECTED WORLD AND INTERCULTURAL APPROACHES: TOWARD A NEW BORDER PARADIGM?
For more information about this very promising congress, on how to contribute and participate, please see the documents below:
Dear LANGSCAPE members, and friends,
One of our newest members, Euline Cutrim Schmid, has asked me to share the following Call for Papers with all of you. Since the topic is one that is very relevant outside of and within LANGSCAPE, I am very happy to do so. Here it is, without further ado.
On Monday 1stof July, 2019, Ghent University and Lancaster University will jointly host a symposium to critically reflect on the notion of translanguaging. The concept adopts various guises. It is sometimes defined as a practice, sometimes as a pedagogy and sometimes as a challenge to the very notion of language itself. It has gained traction at a time when understanding the relationship between language and knowledge has become ever-more paramount, a time when institutions and individuals navigate a volume of information that is simultaneously overwhelming and curiously gated. Not unproblematically, translanguaging is a concept that allows for but rarely addresses the full range of semiotic resources employed in contemporary communication: its very name retains an overarching lingual bias. Nonetheless, it is a concept that wrestles with important issues connected with issues of power, of identity and of claiming the right to speak.
In this symposium, we will explore the paradoxes of translanguaging – how it is theorized, used and explained. We seek to clarify but also critically evaluate the concept and to engage participants in discussion of their own and our related research.
The symposium is a combination of traditional paper presentations and a series of keynote discussions. Each keynote discussion is facilitated by an academic who works with multilingual communities and has engaged with work on multilingualism, plurilingualism and/or translanguaging.
The conference will take place at Ghent University. The conference theme – the various guises of translanguaging – invites critical reflections on the notion of translanguaging. The aim of this symposium is to bring together researchers working in different disciplines, to collect a variety of perspectives on translanguaging and to stimulate discussion and participation in a day of collaborative inquiry. We invite you to submit an abstract of max 300 words by the 31thof March. Notification of acceptance will be sent out at the end of April.
Abstracts should be submitted to email@example.com.

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.

Dear Langscape members,
I would like to bring to your attention this conference on Cross-curricular Language Learning at Sheffield Hallam University (click here). The conference will be of interest to anyone of us working in the field of multilingual education, literacy education, and CLIL.
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 “firstname.lastname@example.org”
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 “email@example.com” or to Stephan Breidbach at “firstname.lastname@example.org”. There will be a more detailed CfP shortly.
Here’s yet another call for papers which is now open: “Matters of the Mind: Psychology and Language Learning” held at the University of Graz and organised by the local “Fachdidaktikzentrum”.

Anyone interested from Langscape in proposing a paper?
