Alabama Modern Language Conference
07-Feb-2014 - 08-Feb-2014
When cultures engage, inevitably altering experiences, practices, and worldviews, new identities emerge. Multilingual and multicultural studies are vital to a fully informed approach to an array of disciplines. They affect our pedagogical approaches, our understanding of discourse, our interpretations of classic and modern literatures, and our appraisal of the evolution of culture, language, and interpersonal interaction.
As critical participants in this process, you are invited to showcase your insights concerning converging cultures. The organizers encourage graduate students in Spanish, French, and German to present examples of how the domains of language, literature and identity interact and create new common ground.
Submissions are welcome in the following categories pertaining to the theme of converging cultures:
- Comparative literature, world literatures, emergent literatures
- Linguistics and language, hybrid speech
- Second language acquisition, applied linguistics, and culture in the classroom
- Post-Colonial and identity studies, multiculturalism, deconstructionist ideology
- Cultural studies, gender studies, topics on race, ethnicity, and class
- Multi-disciplinary approaches in fields such as sociology, psychology, anthropology, and history
Call Deadline: 15-Nov-2013
