Meeting Description:

FIRST INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE ACQUISITION OF SPANISH AS A FIRST AND SECOND LANGUAGE

Facultad de Humanidades y Artes, Universidad Nacional de Rosario,
Rosario, Argentina
June 1, 2 and 3, 2006

First Communication: Call for Papers

We announce the organization of the First Internacional Conference on the Acquisition of Spanish as a First and Second Language, to be held in Rosario, Argentina, on June 1, 2 and 3, 2006.

This Conference is organized by the M.A. Program in Linguistic Theory and Language Acquisition, the Center for the Study of Language Acquisition, and the Center of Theoretical Linguistics, of the Facultad de Humanidades y Artes, Universidad Nacional de Rosario, Argentina.

Language contact and interaction in Latin America generate specific political, economic, educational and social situations. Transnational webs as the ones established through MERCOSUR create and make explicit language situations in which L2 Spanish plays a central role.

The study of languages in contact and of their contexts becomes increasingly necessary. Teaching Spanish as a Second Language is proposed through language academies in a more coordinated and explicit way than it used to be and gradually occupies an increasingly more prominent role in the field of Language Teaching.

The complexity of the linguistic situation generated demands that its study be conducted through a number of autonomous and interacting approaches. At the same time, this perspective has an impact on the studies of the acquisition and teaching of L1 Spanish in general.

Having this goal in mind, the First International Conference on the Acquisition of Spanish as a First and Second Language propose the study, discussion, and evaluation of Spanish as a First and Second Language from multiple perspectives, mainly but not exclusively, from the perspective of L1 and L2 Acquisition Linguistics, Linguistic Theory, Computational Linguistics, Sociolinguistics, Anthropological Linguistics,L1 Spanish Teaching, Foreign Language Teaching, Language and Education Policies, Government and NGOs Language Programs, and other areas linked to the study of language.

This Conference seeks the participation and interaction of specialists, teachers, and professionals in general in the areas mentioned above in order to create a specialized and collaborative environment for the study of Spanish.
