What is the “state of the discourse” on multilingualism in 2011-2012?
Please join the University of Arizona for an international symposium to promote a truly transdisciplinary conversation about multilingualism—one of the defining phenomena of the twenty-first century, among others. The symposium will be held on the University of Arizona campus, on April 13-15, 2012. Symposium participants will be grouped into dialogic clusters. These clusters will not be organized by discipline, but rather across disciplines. Accordingly, each speaker will have ample time to respond to her/his colleagues’ prepared remarks, before the attending audience is then welcomed to pose questions. The symposium will be open to a public audience, and intends to generate a more permanent cross-disciplinary collaboration on multilingualism and monolingualism research over the coming decades.
