Multilingualizing Compulsory Education in the Age of Neoliberalism: Issues, Processes and Inequalities (UAB)
Multilingualizing Compulsory Education in the Age of Neoliberalism: Issues, Processes and Inequalities
Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona,
Facultat de Filosofia i Lletres
22-23 November 2018
Open Call for Papers
This seminar aims to bring together researchers working in the fields of language policy, multilingual education, international education, minority language education, English-as-a-medium-of-instruction and Content-and-language-integrated-learning (CLIL), among others, to discuss inequalities produced by processes of (intensified) multilingualization of compulsory schooling around the world. We hope to encourage critical studies based on ethnographic field engagements in which multiple, situated voices are brought to bear, and intersecting individual and institutional trajectories are analyzed. We would especially like to invite contributions taking a political economy perspective and focalizing the interweaving of multilingualization policies and processes of institutional change linked to wider sociopolitical and economic trends.
– Englishization and the role of other languages (migrant, foreign and official);
– institutional transformations connected to multilingualization (elitization, marketization, internationalization, etc.);
– multilingualization and ideologies of language/ideologies of education/ideologies of citizenship;
– language and neoliberal governmentality;
– multilingualization and work precarization;
– language practices in multilingual in-school and out-of-school programmes;
– multilingualization and native speakerism;
– multilingualization through digital language learning.
