Colloque international: La traduction dans des contextes de plurilinguisme officiel

Ce colloque souhaite fournir l’occasion d’échanger sur la spécificité de la traduction et de l’interprétation dans des contextes de multilinguisme officiel ou institutionnel et les « effets de traduction » (Simon 1996) qui s’y font ressentir. Bon nombre de pays du monde sont officiellement multilingues : l’Afghanistan (le pachtou, le dari), la Belgique (le néerlandais, le français, l’allemand), le Cameroun et le Canada (l’anglais, le français), la Finlande (le finnois, le suédois), l’Inde (23 langues officielles), l’Irlande (l’irlandais, l’anglais), Israël (l’hébreu, l’arabe), la Norvège (les deux variétés du norvégien), le Pakistan (l’ourdou, l’anglais), les Philippines (l’anglais, le filipino-tagalog), l’Afrique du Sud (11 langues officielles) et la Suisse (le français, l’allemand, l’italien), entre autres pays, de même que bon nombre d’organisations internationales (p. e. l’Organisation des Nations Unies, la Commission européenne, Amnesty International). Les interventions traiteront au moins un aspect de l’interaction entre la traduction et le multilinguisme officiel, par exemple l’institutionnalisation de la traduction dans les pays et les organisations identifiés ci-dessus de même que dans d’autres pays et organisations, voire dans les villes bilingues.

Formation Foresite

Après le succès de la première édition, l’équipe Foresite est heureuse de vous présenter la deuxième édition de la formation avec de nouveaux contenus et de nouvelles idées pour vos classes.

L’émergence d’une génération d’élèves nés à l’ère du numérique et les changements tant pédagogiques que technologiques de ces dernières années requièrent de la part des enseignants de langues européens toujours plus de souplesse et de créativité dans la conception de leur enseignement, ainsi qu’une maîtrise actualisée des Technologies de l’information et de la communication pour l’éducation (TICE) afin de suivre ces évolutions.

Développée à la suite du projet SAEL, la formation Foresite s’adresse aux enseignants de langues et aux formateurs européens qui souhaitent se tenir informés, se familiariser ou se perfectionner au regard des innovations liées à l’usage des TICE en cours de langues, échanger avec leurs homologues européens et, pourquoi pas, mettre en œuvre ensemble des projets.

Immersion 2012: Bridging Contexts for a Multilingual World

Language immersion education continues to evolve as a highly effective program model for launching students on the road to bi- and multilingualism and intercultural competence. School-based immersion programs commit to a minimum of 50% subject-matter schooling through a second, world, heritage, or indigenous language at the preschool and elementary levels with varying amounts of subject-based language learning support throughout secondary and post-secondary education. Program models include one-way world language immersion, two-way bilingual immersion, and indigenous/heritage immersion for language and culture revitalization. While each model targets distinct sociocultural contexts and educational needs, all embrace language, literacy and culture development through subject matter learning.

Under the leadership of the Center for Advanced Research on Language Acquisition, University of Minnesota (CARLA), the fourth international conference on immersion education brings these models together to engage in research-informed dialogue and professional exchange across languages, levels, learner audiences, and sociopolitical contexts.

The International Conference "The Voices of Suspense and their Translation in Thrillers" (VSTT) aims to study fictional dialogue and its translation in suspense novels and films and in related genres. The particular interest in dialogue comes from the host of roles it plays in fiction. It helps create suspense and arouses a whole range of feelings related to the development and dénouement of the plot in the reader or the audience.
