Aesthetics in the Language Classroom
In the last decade foreign language education has seen a renewed and growing interest in the role of playful and symbolic uses of language. These conceptual orientations together with calls from the field to better articulate literature and language study across and within programs suggest new potential roles for aesthetic, creative, and metaphorical aspects of language use in the classroom. This panel invites discussion of this topic from theoretical, pedagogical, and/or curricular perspectives. Research studies, theoretical discussions, and exemplary practices are all equally welcome.
