Meeting Description:

The 6th International Conference ‘Crossroads of Languages and Cultures’ (CLC6) will take place at the University of Cyprus between October 23 and October 25 2020. The main theme of CLC6 is the charting of the relationship between plurilingualism, linguistic variation, hybrid linguistic performances and alternative literacies. The hybridity and superdiversity of the contemporary linguistic landscape has been long acknowledged. Do language pedagogies treat language as a complex semiotic resource? Do such pedagogies forge links between pluri- or multilingualism, linguistic variation, translanguaging and alternative literacy practices within and outside of the school context? Do such extant models ultimately debunk dominant literacy policies and practices?

Plenary Speakers:
Professor Ofelia García, City University of New York
Professor Clare Mar-Molinero, University of Southampton
Professor Eleni Skourtou, University of the Aegean

Crossroads 6 is organized by the University of Cyprus (http://www.ucy.ac.cy) and the Open University of Cyprus (https://www.ouc.ac.cy) with the cooperation of Polydromo (http://polydromo.web.auth.gr/index.php/el-gr/).
