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.

International Conference "The Voices of Suspense and their Translation in Thrillers"

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.

Colloque "Traduction, Plurilinguisme et langues en contact"

L’un des principaux enjeux de ce colloque sera d’essayer de définir, dans une perspective traductologique, les spécificités et les enjeux des textes et des traductions plurilingues. Nous essaierons donc de dresser un état des lieux de la question pour la période s’étendant des années 80 à nos jours, toutes aires géographiques confondues, afin de confronter les perspectives pour voir si l’on peut en tirer un socle commun, susceptible de servir de fondement à la réflexion mais aussi d’être questionné par les études de cas proposées et les expériences croisées de créateurs et de traducteurs.

3rd European Conference on Plurilingualism / 3ème Assises européennes du plurilinguisme

Plurilingualism does not mean the disappearance of borders, whether they are physical, political, religious, intellectual, artistic or any others. Such as a door, the border can be opened or closed; it is a marker of identity and of differentiation, but at the same time, it is a condition for a real and authentic exchange. Whatever the border, plurilingualism transforms them as areas of exchanges, enrichment and creativity, a creativity nurtured by an assumed and recognized otherness.

Such is the main set of themes for the 3rd European Conference on plurilingualism which will decline themselves into four henceforth standard registers: education, economy, politics and culture.

CLESOL's 13th National Conference for Community Languages and ESOL

Since its inception in 1990 the CLESOL conference has brought together the needs and interests of two groups of language teachers. Community languages are the first part of the CLESOL equation. Community languages teachers are committed to maintaining the first languages of migrant and refugee groups settled in Aotearoa New Zealand, and introducing those languages to others interested in learning them. Community languages teachers are bilingual (or multilingual) and their work is usually community based. The other half of the CLESOL equation is ESOL teachers. By comparison, ESOL teachers are a much bigger group who work in State education institutions (primary, secondary and tertiary), for private language schools, or as volunteer community tutors. The language of, and focus for, instruction is English, and ESOL teachers are predominantly monolingual native English speakers (but not exclusively so).
