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.

I am putting together a panel on “Slave Sites and the Francophone World” for the 2018 French Colonial Historical Society Meeting in Seattle (May 31-June 2). I am seeking 1-2 more panelists and a chair. Ibrahima Seck and I will both be presenting papers on Gorée Island, Senegal. I am interested in expanding this panel to include papers that address slave monuments, memorials, museums, heritage sites, etc. in other regions of French, or former French, Empire.
