Meeting Description:

Translanguaging – Practices, Skills and Pedagogy
Dates: 20-22 April, 2015
Venue: Dalarna University, Falun, Sweden

This conference takes a critical perspective on the question of education for multilingual students by exploring the notion of translanguaging. Challenging traditional perceptions of languages as discrete, countable entities, the notion of translanguaging highlights the simultaneous use of different kinds of linguistic forms, signs and modalities. The aim of the conference is to scrutinize the notion of translanguaging from three different but integrated perspectives: as practices, as skills and as pedagogy.

Keynote Speakers:

- Professor Jim Cummins, University of Toronto
- Professor Angela Creese, University of Birmingham
- Professor Sari Pöyhönen, Jyväskylä University
- Assistant professor Carla Jonsson, Stockholm University

Conference Fee:

1200 SEK
1000 SEK students and PhD students

Registration open: 1 December 2014
Registration deadline: 31 January 2015

The conference is arranged by Dalarna University through the research groups Education and Learning and Culture, Identity and Representations.

Organisation committee: Prof. Åsa Wedin (chair), Dr. Jenny Rosén, Dr. Boglárka Straszer, Dr. Joyce Kemuma, Dr. BethAnne Y. Paulsrud, Sara Nittve and Erika Aho.

Call for Papers:

The aim of the conference is to:

- Present research from different arenas, such as applied linguistics, education and multilingualism, that build on micro studies about translingual practices in relation to education
- Offer a platform for discussion of methodological and conceptual questions relevant for education in the light of ongoing processes of change and mobility
- Create a meeting place for researchers in the field but also between researchers and teachers
- Facilitate the development of interdisciplinary research and the creation of interdisciplinary networks enabling exchange of theoretical and applied knowledge

We welcome paper presentations organized individually or as a colloquium. The time available for a colloquium is 90 minutes and should include at least 4 presentations. If you are interested in organizing a colloquium during the conference, please contact the organizers before October 15, 2014.

We also welcome presentations or workshops organized by teachers working in the field in order to demonstrate good practices. 

Individual presentations are organized in 30 minutes sections (20 min presentation +10 min discussion). Presentations in any language are welcomed during the conference, although due to the reviewing process, abstracts can only be sent in Swedish or English. We especially welcome presentations given in any of the Swedish minority languages.

All abstracts are peer-reviewed and notification of acceptance will be given in December 2014. Submit your abstract (max 300 words), including contact information and preferred language of your presentation here.
