Languages and texts: learning and developmental approaches
(Please, note that last minute changes may be required.
We kindly ask you to check a later version).
The 12th ARLE conference, chaired by Maria Antónia Coutinho (Universidade NOVA de Lisboa), aims to focus on the central role of language and texts in the development of individuals in school learning contexts and other diverse (training) contexts. It highlights that it is through the mediating function of language that identity is built, that action and relationship abilities are consolidated, that knowledge is developed and communicated.
In this sense, we welcome papers that contribute to a better understanding of the multiple aspects that can be considered in the domain of language and texts: didactics of language, texts and literature; literature and other arts; language acquisition and impairment; different literacies (digital, scientific, literary, among others); multimodalities; relationship between verbal and nonverbal language; reading, interpretation and production (oral and written); creative writing and writing for specific purposes.
The papers to be presented may favor the revision of literature or the presentation of research results, preliminary or final ones. In any case, it is expected that discussion around presentations allow the development of knowledge, the sharing of good practices and the reflection on the challenges that are presented to the tasks of education within the scope of languages, texts, literature and literacies in the contemporary world. There is also the possibility to submit symposia and contribute via various other formats.
Keynotes will be delivered by João Costa, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa/Portugal, Sarah Levine, Stanford Graduate School of Education/USA, Gert Rijlaarsdam, University of Amsterdam/NL and University of Antwerp/Belgium. Bernard Schneuwly, University of Geneva/CH will serve as grand témoin.
The 12th ARLE Conference follows the ARLE basic guidelines. Founded in 1997 by Gert Rijlaarsdam (NL) and Ken Watson (Australia), the ARLE (formerly IAIMTE) cares for the quality of teaching and learning of education languages, invests in international exchange and cooperation as contributions to the improvement of the work developed at a local or regional level and encourages the consolidation of sound scientific foundations associated with the teaching and learning of languages, literature and literacies.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Lisbon.
