CFP Crossroads of Languages & Cultures (Cyprus)

ConferencesCall for papers: 6th International Conference ‘Crossroads of Languages and Cultures’ (CLC6): Plurilingualism, Variation, Spaces of Literacy, University of Cyprus, October 23-25, 2020. Deadline: March 15, 2020.

Keynote speakers: Ofelia Garcia, Clare Mar-Molinero, Eleni Skourtou.

The main theme of CLC6 is the charting of the relationship between plurilingualism, linguistic variation, hybrid linguistic performances and alternative literacies. The hybridity and superdiversity of the contemporary linguistic landscape has been long acknowledged. Do language pedagogies treat language as a complex semiotic resource? Do such pedagogies forge links between pluri- or multilingualism, linguistic variation, translanguaging and alternative literacy practices within and outside of the school context? Do such extant models ultimately debunk dominant literacy policies and practices?

Τhe languages of the conference are English and Greek.
