The debates within our conference aim to answer several questions:
To what extend does the ”central-marginal” pair remain a valid distinction for discussing linguistic and cultural identities at present?
What kinds of linguistic structures and cultural identities result from the interaction between ethnic and mainstream voices?
Which are the recent migration patterns that significantly influence cultural and linguistic configurations in Western and South-Eastern Europe?
To what extent are the “gender” and “race” dimensions relevant for the analysis of mobility trends in contemporary Europe?
The conference proposes to explore the following themes:
Independent / Autonomous language learning - Innovation in language teaching and learning - Language acquisition and learning - Language development, impairment, attrition, and loss (sociolinguistics)
Language teaching methodology - Language testing and assessment - Language program evaluation
Discourse Analysis - Institutional communication - professional communication
Cultural Studies - Cultural history - world literature - literature and media - Literary Translation - Comparative Literature - postcolonial studies - diasporic identities
