Wednesday 25 June - Friday 27 June 2014

The annual conference of the Association for French Language Studies (AFLS) will be held at the University of Kent, Canterbury, from Wednesday 25 to Friday 27 June 2014. 

AFLS was founded in 1981 to encourage and promote language teaching activities and research in French Language and Linguistics as areas worthy of consideration in their own right. The Association acts as a forum for scholarly discussion and for the exchange of information among those interested and engaged in teaching French in Higher Education.

Françoise Gadet (Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense)
Mari Jones (Cambridge)

Jonathan Kasstan (J.Kasstan at kent.ac.uk)

2nd Call for Papers:

‘Que le français se nomme diversité…’

At a time when many scholars are asking whether it is the relative homogeneity of European French, at least at the diatopic level, which renders it ‘exceptional’, this conference will explore ways in which diversity continues throughout the francophone world, or is emerging in new guises. How are differences at all levels, be they stylistic, sociolinguistic, syntactic, or semantic, manifested in the modern language, and what form did they take in the past? The conference will examine other ‘diversities’, too: for example, in theoretical descriptive frameworks as applied to French, in pedagogical methods and outcomes, and in the experience of French bilinguals.

The organising committee welcomes abstract submissions on these and any other areas of French linguistics and French language teaching in Higher Education.

Conference papers are welcome in either French or English, and abstracts should be written in the language of the presentation.  Speakers will be given 30 minutes for oral papers (20 minutes, plus 10 minutes for questions).
