Meeting Description:

Arabic has been taught in the Low Countries since the Renaissance and
translating from and into Arabic has always been a key activity in the
study of that language at our universities. Paradoxically, however, the
didactics of Arabic as a modern communication tool on the one hand and the
didactics of Arabic translation on the other hand have never developed into
full-fledged academic disciplines. The purpose of this conference,
organised by University College Francisco Ferrer, is to address them
jointly since the teaching of Arabic is part and parcel of our Arabic
translator training programme. The conference offers a forum for
(re)examining established areas of knowledge as well as exploring new
practice and research. Papers may be related to theory and praxis, but the
core domains we wish to study are: teaching Arabic as a second/foreign
language, translation studies, comparative stylistics, terminology studies,
sociolinguistics and LSP.

Presentations are not to exceed 30 minutes, including ten minutes for
questions. Proposals should be sent to Philippe Anckaert
langues.culturesbrunette.brucity.be before 15 May 2007. Abstracts (between
250 and 500 words) should be accompanied by a bionote (maximum 100 words)
and a brief description (maximum 50 lines) of the presenter's expertise in
the field (publications, seminars, projects, etc.). A selection of papers
will be published by Presses Ferrer in Idioma, 'Langues et cultures' series.

The conference languages are Arabic, English and French.

Venue and accommodation: the conference will take place on 19 and 20
October 2007, at University College Francisco Ferrer, Square Anneessens 11,
1000 Brussels, Belgium. The registration fee of €130 includes the
conference pack, lunch and coffee. Transportation and accommodation need to
be booked by delegates separately.
