AILA 2023 The French edition
Reacting to pre- and post-COVID global issues, this congress will be organized around the theme « Diversity and social cohesion in a globalized world: towards more committed language sciences ». The overall goal will be to reflect on how studies in applied linguistics and the researchers who produce them can participate in the construction of a globalized world in which respect for diversity as a basis for social cohesion requires individual and collective commitment.

Call for Papers:

Symposium at AILA 2023: Teaching (for) Diversity: Multilingualism in Teacher Education

Coordinators: Evghenia Goltsev, University of Regensburg, Germany & Helena Olfert, Münster University, Germany
Symposium format: Symposium Multimodal
Symposium mode: Hybrid

In the light of a holistic approach to multilingualism in education (Duarte & Günther-van der Meij 2018), teachers are considered to be of particular importance. Therefore, the aim of the symposium, held as part of the 20th AILA World Congress, is to bring together researchers from different disciplines who explore the potentials of a holistic approach to multilingualism in teacher education.
We welcome papers addressing any aspect related to allochthonous or autochthonous multilingualism in teacher education including empirical and theoretical studies across different countries, contexts, and phases of teacher education (pre-service and in-service). Papers may focus on teacher students, educators, universities, language policies, or instructional approaches to multilingualism in teacher education using various methodological approaches, including but not limited to interview studies, quantitative surveys, class observations, corpus analyses, action research, ethnographic research, case studies or small-scale interventions. We explicitly invite papers focusing on educating teachers for language diversity in the majority language classroom, but also in the minority, foreign and heritage language classroom as well as in sciences, math, social studies, and arts.

Invited speakers:
Prof. Galina Putjata, Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany
Prof. Joana Duarte, University of Groningen, Netherlands
