>
> Call for Papers:
>
> In recent decades, Linguistic Landscape Studies (LLS) has established
> itself as an analytic approach towards the presence of (written)
> language(s) in the public space. Target areas for practitioners of LLS are
> preferably located in urban environments: on the one hand, those which are
> considered monolingual but are characterized by a multilingualism that has
> evolved out of unplanned processes of migration, transculturation and
> globalization, and on the other hand, those which are considered
> territorially or administratively bi- or multilingual and where the
> presence of multiple languages in the public sphere is the result of (more
> or less) coherent language planning and language policy.
>
> Even if the status of LLS is object of some controversy (cf. CfP), it goes
> without saying that this approach is characterized by a multitude of
> interfaces with other disciplines and domains of knowledge. Thus, our panel
> has a twofold aim: first, we invite practitioners of LLS to present case
> studies based on empirical research in Francophone areas in the broad
> sense, i.e. where French is either the dominant language, a minority
> language or a contact language. Second, we wish to provide room for
> discussion on methodological reflections concerning the potentials and
> limits of LLS. We would particularly appreciate talks that combine the two
> perspectives, i.e. empirical case studies, and methodological and
> epistemological reflections (cf. CfP).
>
> We invite case studies of LLS in the Francophone world and papers on
> methodological questions such as the following:
>
> - Do LLS necessarily study 'cityscapes' (cf. Gorter 2006: 83)? Or can
> language diversity in public spaces also be observed in areas outside of
> urban agglomerations (cf. Gade 2003, for example) in today's society of
> globalized information (and if so, to which degree?)?
> - Do the quantitative approach applied in most of the LLS projects up to
> now, and the requirement of full coverage and exhaustive data collection in
> the determined target zone guarantee valid and convincing results? Or might
>  it be preferable to opt for qualitative approaches (and if so,: with which
> object of study precisely? Cf. Jaworski / Thurlow 2010) or for hybrid
> 'mixed' methods which are quite popular in different areas of study of
> contemporary linguistics and which would combine the two approaches?
> - Is the concentration in LLS on the scriptural elements in the linguistic
> landscape, which ignores or treats peripherally other signs and semiotic
> levels observable in the public space, justified as a means of necessary
> reductionism which holds for any scientific methodology aiming at realistic
> and feasible results? Or does such reductionism prevent scholars of LLS
> from fully grasping and describing the multimodality of linguistic
> landscapes adequately (cf. again Jaworski / Thurlow 2010)?
> - Which is the role of the individual subject who perceives the linguistic
> landscape in the conceptual construction of the latter? In many LLS
> projects, it is the researcher her-/himself whose perception of the public
> space determines the quality of the observed data and that of the results
> derived from their analysis. However, the researcher-observer's perception
> is not the same as that of an observing 'layman'. However, how can the
> perceptual pathway of such a lay observer and her/his necessarily selective
> and, therefore, hierarchical vision of a linguistic landscape be documented
> and integrated into LLS studies, especially if the criterion of (technical
> and ethical) feasibility is taken into account?
> - On the epistemological level, do LLS constitute a new 'school' or maybe
> even a new discipline within linguistics, or should they be given the more
> modest status of a (new?) methodological paradigm? Is the LLS methodology
> able to produce innovative results that can not be provided by other
> established research methods in socio- and contact linguistics?
>
> Paper proposals, which should not exceed 500 words (bibliographical
> references included), must be sent in PDF format, with the indication of
> the author's / authors' name(s), address(es) and contact details on a
> separate page, by email to the organizers of the panel:

> The talks, which will be organized in 30-minutes slots, can be given in
> French (preferred), German, or English. Proposals should be written in the
> language that the author(s) intend(s) to use in the oral presentation. The

> At the end of September, about 150 professors, business leaders,
> researchers, policymakers, and intelligence experts gathered at a one-day
> conference at the University of Maryland to discuss how best to act upon
> the ìLanguages For All?î white paper drafted by the universityís director

> (ACTFL), Dan E. Davidson (ACIE), William P. Rivers (JNCL-NCLIS), Robert
> Slater (ACIE), Amy Weinberg (CASLS-UMD), and Anandini Yoganathan (British
> Academy).
>
> The white paper summarizes the current positions as follows: ìFor decades,
> English-speaking countries have wrestled with the question of whether one
> language, English, is enough for their citizens. For its part, the U.S. has
> not made learning a second language a critical part of its education
> system, despite the demands of government and industry as well as the
> expectations of the overwhelming majority of parents across the country.î
>
> The intention was to answer the following questions:
>
> ï Should the education system in the U.S. provide all children access to
> the interpersonal, developmental, and economic benefits of a second
> language?
>
> ï Are our schools, colleges, and universities capable of making and willing
> to make language education universally available? If so, how? If not, why
> not?
>
> The paper offers evidence that:
>
> ï The demand for languages other than English has dramatically increased
> over the past decade, to the extent that the current education system can
> now be seen as failing to provide a critical skill to the majority of this
> countryís youth.
>
> ï Advances in science, technology, and best practices can make universal
> access to second languages feasible, but only if:
>
> ï scientific breakthroughs are exploited effectively by the formal
> education system and by the growing language services industry,
>
> ï access to the Internet is universally available, and
>
> ï research-based best practices in language education are identified and
> promulgated throughout the PK-16 system.
> In light of this evidence, the document put forward the following
> recommendations, which combine top-down federal interventions and a
> bottom-up activism on the part of the ìlanguage enterprise,î a convergence
> of government, education, private industry, and heritage communities:
>
> ï Create a public awareness campaign on the personal and societal benefits,
> including national security and economic
> competitiveness, of language education.
>
> ï Document across the language enterprise, what language learning resources
> exist, where they are, and how they can be accessed, together with
> standards and assessments that guarantee efficiency and effectiveness for
> program outcomes.
>
> ï Investigate the barriers at every level of the education system that are
> inhibiting the spread of language learning and teaching.
>
> ï Develop a research agenda that fills the gaps in evidence regarding
> universal access to language education.
>
> ï Initiate a national program of dual-language immersions among other
> program models demonstrating that learning languages can be effectively and
> efficiently integrated into a major part of the
> PK-12 system.
>
> Key to the initiative is the recognition that action is required at all
> levels ó local, state, national, and international ó if we are to begin to
> provide effective means for all students in English-speaking countries to
> gain competence in a second language. The conference was intended to be a
> springboard for change so here are some voices to the call.

> ìFrom my perspective, the goal of the Languages for All? initiative is to

> ï A coherent set of messages about the role of language as a key component

> security, economic wellbeing, and social justice.
> ï Model policies for state and local school boards.
> ï Model legislation for national programs to stimulate investment in

> ï A coordinated campaign to enact legislation and influence local

> ìThe Languages for All? conference highlighted the remarkable convergence

> current situations facing the U.S. and the U.K. The problem is the same:
> the lack of people with the command of languages other than English
> required to satisfy the needs of business, industry, and government. The
> risk is the same: increasing displacement from a multilingual world. The
> challenge is the same: to enhance the place of languages and language
> teaching within schools and colleges. Moreover, both nations have a large
> underexploited capital in the form of many bilingual citizens who are given
> neither the opportunity nor the incentive to develop their languages within
> the existing education system. The conference also made it clear that the

> Social Sciences and Humanities, and the American Academy of Arts and
