Connecting cultures? An international conference on the history of teaching and learning foreign/second languages, 1500-2000

University of Nottingham July 2-5 2014

This conference will be the first in the United Kingdom dedicated to the history of modern language teaching and learning. We invite submissions for papers on any aspect of the history of foreign/second language teaching and/or learning. Comparative approaches, exploring commonalities and differences between different language teaching traditions, and/or between different countries, are particularly welcome.

The keynote speakers will be Michael Byram (Professor Emeritus, University of Durham), Giovanni Iamartino (Professor, University of Milan) and Marcus Reinfried (Professor, University of Jena)

The conference will include a lead strand on Culture in the teaching of Foreign/Second Languages: Theoretical Conceptions, Curricula and Textbooks.

We warmly welcome proposals for further themed panels (minimum of three papers) on any aspect of the history of teaching and/or learning languages.

Please send abstracts of around 300 words (and proposals for themed panels) to historyofmfl@nottingham.ac.uk by December 1, 2013. The conference languages are English, French and German, but papers are welcome on the history of teaching/learning any language.
