Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Policy and Ideology in Language Teaching and Learning: Actors and Discourses

The research unit EA 4514 PLIDAM (Multiple Language and Identity: Teaching, Acquisition, Mediations) are developing research around the teaching and learning of multilingualism and multiculturalism based on the 93 languages taught at the National Institute of Oriental Languages and Civilizations (INALCO) in Paris. PLIDAM establishes links between national, regional, minority and endangered languages, which are evolving in a globalized world, where the speakers have or do not have international mobility. As a result of French, European and international action, this colloquium marks the five-year plan 2014 – 2018 of the PLIDAM research unit.

This colloquium is being held in partnership with the EA 2288 DILTEC (Language teaching, texts and cultures), l'EA 4661 ELLIAD-D (Publishing, Languages, Literature, Computer Science, Arts, Speech, Teaching and Learning), the Centre for Language Pedagogy (School of Oriental and African studies in London) and the Research Centre for Languages and Cultures (University of South Australia, Adelaide).

In this colloquium, that also benefits from the collaboration of the SIHFLES (International Society for the History of French as a Foreign or Second Language) and of the DoRiF-Università, we will question the balance of power between languages in a period of geopolitical change, in its contemporary or historical context and its impact on language teaching and learning.

The languages of the colloquium are French and English.

The registration fee is 100€ for teachers and researchers and 40€ for students with a valid university enrollment. Lunches and coffee breaks are included.
