Call for Papers: Beyond Multilingualism – Translanguaging in Education, 2-3 November 2020, University of Basel, Switzerland. Deadline extended to 15 May 2020.
The Institute for Educational Sciences of the University of Basel and the Schaffhausen University of Teacher Education invite proposals for the two-day international conference on “Beyond Multilingualism –Translanguaging in Education” at the University of Basel, Switzerland, 2—3 November 2020. This conference takes a transdisciplinary approach to translanguaging in education. It examines how translanguaging is perceived, its impact and its implications, especially in the classroom. We are particularly interested in the relationship between everyday linguistic practices and language policies in education. To what extent are multilingualism and translanguaging taken into account as institutional issues in educational public spaces? What are the linguistic practices of various stakeholders in their diverse educational institutions?
