Workshop: “New perspectives on crosslinguistic influence in language learning”

This workshop is intended to bring together specialists working on crosslinguistic influence in language learning in order to discuss new perspectives and current issues in this area of research, such as the following (cf. Jarvis & Pavlenko 2008:5):

    - studies dealing with the causes, constraints, the selectivity, and directionality of crosslinguistic influence
    - investigations on the scope and on different types of crosslinguistic influence (transfer of linguistic structures, socio-culturally shaped patterns of language usage, learning strategies, and others)
    - investigations on the implications of the insights into crosslinguistic influence for the teaching and learning of L1, L2, L3 etc. and for multiple language learning in general
    - studies dealing with the connection between crosslinguistic influence and linguistic awareness, especially with reference to third language acquisition
    - theoretical models that account for different causes, occurrences and manifestations of crosslinguistic influence; theories that explain the influence of cognitive, linguistic and extralinguistic factors in crosslinguistic influence
    - studies focusing on the development and the testing of hypotheses concerning crosslinguistic influence on the basis of theoretical models

Topics in Applied Linguistics (TAL): Communication in the New Media Age

The questions that we would like to address during  the Conference concern the impact of the new media on second language acquisition and foreign language learning and teaching, bilingualism and multilingualism, contrastive linguistics, language assessment, literacies, discourse analysis, language pedagogy, lexicography, language planning and policies, pragmatics, forensic linguistics, and translation.

Queen's University Belfast is pleased to announce its Interdisciplinary Linguistics Conference 2012 (ILinC 2012), a student-led venture co-organised by the Schools of Education, English, and Modern Languages. Given the success of the last ILinC, this two-day conference will give researchers studying language in all academic disciplines the opportunity to exchange information about their research practice in the presence of distinguished and esteemed academics in the field of linguistics.

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.
