The expansion of bilingual and multilingual education in an increasingly globalised world involves a series of intrinsic challenges to which both teachers and students respond with changes and innovations – technological, methodological or procedural – with respect to the traditional model of learning-teaching.

Loyola University Chicago History Graduate Student Conference:
November 18, 2017
Loyola University Chicago Lake Shore Campus, Chicago, IL
I am interested in publishing a book about research-based parenting practices. The book would attempt to "translate" academic jargon that is used in published work, so that a general, non-academic audience can benefit from research findings.
The format of any article (1000-3000 words) or chapter (5000-10000 words) would be:
I. Introduction to the "problem" - introduce the reader to an issue for parents - an obstacle, goal or strategy. This should be in the format of a story or vignette.
Sponsored by the Thyssen Foundation, the workshop, "Global Cultural Encounters, - Between the Material and Immaterial, 1750-1950," explores our world's interconnectedness since the modern era. The workshop will take place at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

I am looking to organize a panel for the 2018 Barcelona LASA Congress which considers the question, "is tourism colonialism?"
Of greatest interest will be carefully developed case studies featuring a clear response to the central question and series of keen observations regarding either the environmental, social and/or cultural significance of tourist centered exchange in the Americas and greater Atlantic world (past and present).
