On Monday 1st of July, 2019, Ghent University and Lancaster University host a one-day symposium to critically reflect on the notion of translanguaging.  

In this symposium, we will explore the paradoxes of translanguaging – how it is theorized, used and explained. We seek to clarify but also critically evaluate the concept and to engage participants in discussion of their own and our related research. The aim of this symposium is to bring together researchers working in different disciplines, to collect a variety of perspectives on translanguaging and to stimulate discussion and participation in a day of collaborative inquiry. The symposium is a combination of traditional paper presentations and a series of keynote discussions

The conference will take place at Ghent University. 

Deadline for submitting abstracts: 31 March 2019 (max. 300 words)

Organizing commitee: Diane Potts (Lancaster University), Kirsten Rosiers (Ghent University), Stef Slembrouck (Ghent University), Piet Van Avermaet (Ghent University)
