Second Colloquium on Language Contact in Education: Multilingual Competences and practices

Second Colloquium on Language Contact in Education: Multilingual Competences and practices (LCEMCP)
Faculté des Sciences de l’Education
Mohamed V University – Rabat – Morocco
13th- 14th March, 2019

Multilingualism predominates in many parts of the world and a considerable number of people find it useful, even necessary, to have some amount of proficiency in more than one language. However, the benefits of multilingualism for individuals and communities are often accompanied by dangers on identities, cultures and less powerful languages. An essential challenge for modern societies which promote multilingualism is to maintain control over its potential threats. Many countries now have policies designed to protect endangered languages but education plays an equally important role in shaping youth’s national identity and fostering cultural awareness. Understanding multilingual competences and practices will contribute to achieving those purposes given that the complex process of multilingual acquisition invokes nationalism, politics, history, ideology, attitudes, beliefs, preferences, identity, culture and power relations between languages; and the resulting linguistic behaviour reflects the same constructs.

The conference seeks to to bring together worldwide researchers and scholars to share their research results on the factors that contribute to shaping multilingual competences and the patterns that distinguish multilingual practices in different communities. The ultimate objective is to inform additional language learning and teaching and reflect on multilingualism and diversity management. To attain the conference objectives, we invite papers in all areas of research that address linguistic, sociolinguistic, psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic or educational issues pertaining to multilingual minds and environments.
