Meeting Description:

Theme: Storytelling and Academic Discourse

The theme, Storytelling and Academic Discourse, aims to open up conversations about the following questions:

- How do we conceive academic discourse?
- How do our conceptions inform our teaching practices?
- Are academic discourse and storytelling compatible? If so, what are some points of contact, and how can they benefit our students?
- How do we take into account the linguistic and cultural diversity of our students as we bring academic discourse—and possibly storytelling—into our classrooms?

Call for Papers:

We invite proposals for 30-minute presentations (20-minute talks and 10 minutes for questions) on original research or pedagogical practices related to language, society and culture.

Please send as an attachment a 300-word abstract and a 50-word summary for the conference program to the attention of Andrea Parmegiani, Conference Chair, at the conference contact email:
