Meeting Description:

The European Network for Intercultural Education Activities (ENIEDA) in
cooperation with The Centre for Research and Innovation in Linguistic Education
(CIEL) of the University of Alba Iulia, Romania, and The Institute of Foreign
Languages (IFL) of the University of Montenegro are organising the Second
International Conference on Linguistic and Intercultural Education (CLIE2)
entitled 'Linguistic and Cultural Diversity within European Learning
Communities: Cross-cultural and Trans-national Perspectives'. The special focus
theme proposed for the conference is universal vs. culture specific in the
discourse of academic and professional rhetoric. The conference is taking place
in Herceg Novi, Montenegro, from 10-12 June 2010.

Following the success of the 1st International Conference on Linguistic and
Intercultural Education (CLIE1), hosted by the University of Alba Iulia (27-29
November 2008), and the follow-up Exploratory Workshop (21-23 May 2009), which
saw the establishment of the European Network for Intercultural Education
Activities (ENIEDA), we are happy to announce that the CLIE2 conference intends
to capitalise on the achievements and the collaborative spirit created during
the two events and to explore further key questions on their agenda.

CLIE2, therefore, will remain open to linguistic and cross-cultural
education-related topics broadly defined, looking more closely into the current
dynamics in Europe between old and new trends, local and global tendencies,
progressive and conservative views, stabilisation and destabilisation patterns,
national and European identities. Even though our aim is to focus primarily on
European learning communities and their culture specific identities, we would
welcome participants representing other geographical and geo-political regions
and their contributions as well.

Call for Papers

It is expected that CLIE2 will attract a number of front-ranking academics,
professionals and policy makers working in the broad area of linguistic and
intercultural education in Europe (and beyond). Reaffirming the pledge expressed
in the ENIEDA mission statement, the main aim of the conference is to promote
the values of multilingualism and intercultural cooperation in a rapidly
changing and communication-driven society with cross-border and culture-
convergent encounters. Our task is to re-examine and re-define key questions on
our existing agenda, as well as to identify new collaborative and networking
opportunities, both of which will inform future directions of research and
