Meeting Description: The Language Teaching Centre of the University of Freiburg will host the international conference on ''Multilingualism in Society, Politics and Education'' from 16-18 March 2017.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

Elizabeth Lanza, University of Oslo, Norway
Rosemarie Tracy, University of Mannheim, Germany
Natalia Gagarina, Centre for General Linguistics (ZAS), Berlin, Germany

The purpose of this conference is to bring together practitioners and researchers of language teaching and (adult as well as child) language acquisition, heads of language centres at higher education institutions, and heads of the language units at schools and other relevant institutions with decision makers from the fields of politics and social services. Combining the fields ''education and teaching'' and ''politics and society'' should lead to stimulating discussions and, ideally, novel approaches as well as new ways for implementing solutions.
