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.
Stephan & Lutz
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”.
