Towards Equitable Language Instruction for the Intercultural Classroom
The Chinese University of Hong Kong – Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation
This panel will broach the topic of shaping a poetic identity through the prism of a traumatic experience of displacement. How does the poet present a disturbing personal history on the page? Coming from one place and being forcibly moved to another also involves confronting a different language and culture: how is such an occurrence translated to the page? Is poetry a space where cultures and languages clash with one another, or does the expression effect a reconciliation?
THE KUM INTERNATIONAL ELT CONVENTION
Northeastern Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
ASPIRANTUM - School of languages and cultures invites international participants to apply and take part in Persian, Armenian and Russian language winter schools to be organized from December 1 till December 21, 2019 in Yerevan, Armenia. Each language winter school offers 60 hours of intensive language classes during 15 days of teaching (from Monday till Friday each week). Every day the participants will receive a language instruction for 4 hours.
To see the details of each language school, the deadlines as well as the prices please follow the links below for each language.
This panel seeks submissions relating to the Northeastern Modern Languages Association (NeMLA) 2020 Convention theme of Shaping and Sharing Identities, specifically through a gastronomic approach. Cuisine is a daily manifestation and interpretation of culture, and France is arguably the epitomic space in which to observe this phenomenon. French terroir, the connection between the land and its products, has long shaped the French culinary tradition and identity. However, throughout the centuries the land itself and people’s connection to it have shifted and transformed.
