Conference Objectives and Theme: 

TELL 2004 is an interdisciplinary conference aiming to promote the
exchange of research findings among scholars and graduate students in
the fields and related fields of Teaching of Languages, Linguistics,
and Literature. The conference theme for this year is Globalization
and the Teaching of Languages, Linguistics, and Literature in EFL
Contexts.

The ongoing process of globalization has not only led to a rapid
expansion of the territorial boundaries of English, but also made the
teaching and learning of the languages more complex than ever before,
particularly in the study of English as a second or foreign language.
In conjunction with these issues, new questions have been generated by
globalization and the rapid development of information technology,
including:

1. What's the impact of globalization on local languages and cultures?
2. Does English language teaching require new methods and approaches
in order to cope with the new demands?
3. How can we best use technology and modern tools in foreign language
teaching and learning?
4. Does globalization require new language teaching materials and
content?
5. What is the place of literature and culture in EFL teaching in the
21st Century?
6. Should there be, in fact, many Englishes, and is one as good as
another? or
7. Should some kind of global standardization be imposed so that the
language doesn't become a deformed, bastardized copy of
itself?

Many other questions will be referred to in the conference in the
coming year.

The theme of this conference was chosen to generate further discussion
and academic debate on the above issues. In particular, presenters
and participants are requested to carefully examine how globalization
will continue influencing the three fields of Language Teaching,
Linguistics, and Literature in EFL contexts. It is hoped that
presenters will make suggestions as to how language teachers, and
especially graduate students, can participate in further research that
will lead to suggested resolutions to some of the above questions.

Submission Procedure:

Submitters of abstracts will be invited for a 20-minute presentation
(followed by a 10-minute discussion). We welcome studies relevant to
the conference theme or any topic related to or integrating the three
areas, Teaching of Languages, Linguistics, and Literature. Please

Meeting Description:

Congress on Language Diversity, Sustainability and Peace.

The need to preserve the languages of the world and counter the
processes of language shift that are taking place worldwide has become
a major concern shared by researchers, scholars and leaders of many
language communities.

This Dialogue wants to bring together all persons interested in the
maintenance of linguistic diversity in order to generate fruitful
discussions that may be used to hold back the current processes of
cultural homogenization of the world.

The congress will be held in Barcelona between May 20 and 23 in the
framework of the Universal Forum of Cultures - Barcelona 2004. Working
sessions will be of two types. On the one hand, the keynote
communications, that will give a general overview on the three main
axes of the congress (language diversity, sustainability and peace)
and the possible interrelations among them, taking into account the
new cultural, social, political and economic factors stemming from an
increasing globalization process. On the other hand, the five parallel
workshops that will be held in the afternoon sessions will have a more
specific approach to linguistic diversity and its relation to language
policy and planning. Working languages will be Catalan, English,
French and Spanish.
