Meeting Description:

‘Le français au contact des cultures’

The annual conference of the Association of French Language Studies (AFLS) will be held at the University of Exeter, UK, from Monday 18 to Wednesday 20 July 2022.

The Exeter 2022 AFLS conference focuses on the impact that contact with cultures, societies, and languages (as evolving phenomena) has on the French language.

How is this contact reflected in language change and variation?
How does it create and modify our perception of French language?
To what extent does it influence language acquisition?
How does it inform, shape, or integrate with French language teaching?

2nd Call for Papers:

Deadline extended to 11 Mar, 2022

We invite papers that address any topic in the broad area of “Le français au contact des cultures” or that fall within the areas traditionally covered by AFLS. Papers taking a wide variety of theoretical and methodological approaches are welcome.

Conference papers are welcome in either French or English, and abstracts should be written in the language of the presentation. Speakers will be given 30 minutes for oral papers (20 minutes, plus 10 minutes for questions). Speakers will have a choice between doing their presentation virtually (online) or in person (on campus), as part of the registration process.

Abstracts may be submitted via the EasyChair platform. Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words (including title and references), plus 5 keywords, and should be sent by 11 March 2022. Abstracts should be anonymised and should state explicitly which field they subscribe to (using the keywords to do so).
