In making the study of the role of culture in foreign language learning the theme of CLaSIC 2012, the Organizing Committee acknowledges its undoubted importance and encourages participants to actively contemplate and debate this essential issue. Through scholarly and critical interactions with a diverse range of subthemes, ranging from “culture, identity and motivation” to “intercultural language teaching” and “ethnographic approaches to language teaching,” it is hoped that a keener understanding of the multi-faceted relationship between culture and foreign language education can be achieved.

Congrès International : Les locuteurs et les langues : pouvoirs, non-pouvoirs et contre-pouvoirs

L’objectif de ce congrès est d’explorer la manière dont, dans des espaces sociaux diversifiés (institutions politiques, école, milieux de travail, milieux associatifs etc.), le langage (en tant que pratiques, discours et idéologie) constitue un instrument de pouvoir, de non-pouvoir et de contre-pouvoir. Ce congrès cherchera avant tout à comprendre les processus sociaux complexes qui font du langage un terrain de lutte, de consensus ou encore de construction de la différence. En effet, la diversité des langues et leur variabilité intrinsèque s’inscrivent dans de véritables processus liés à la distribution du pouvoir, qu’il soit économique, social, politique ou symbolique. À ce titre, langues et langage contribuent à structurer nos sociétés, et les individus qui la composent, dévoilant alors des tensions et des rapports de pouvoir.
