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.
Dear Langscape members,
There will be a conference on “Sociocultural Competence & Multilingual Education” at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel on September 19-20, 2014. The conference will be co-hosted by Langscape and co-organised by Katja Lochtman, who is currently on the Board of Directors for Conferences & Expert Meetings.
There are also plans to have a meeting of the Board of Directors and R&N Consultants concomitant to the conference.
A call for papers and further information on the event will follow during the summer break, presumably by mid-August.
