AICLU CONFERENCE 2017
Siena, 18-19-20 May 2017
CALL FOR PAPERS

The languages of Language Centres towards European and international challenges:
education and employment.

Drawing on the results of surveys and research projects (ELAN, 2007; PIMLICO, 2010), in the last decade the European Commission has stressed the relevance of knowing and using a foreign language in the working context (e.g. companies, public institutions, service industry). In particular, proficiency in a foreign language represents a considerable advantage in sales and marketing and provides a significant aid in intra and extra-company communication at all levels.

In this perspective, the role of university language centres as privileged loci for advanced language education is crucial in complying with European requirements on languages and employment, promoting work-oriented language training within the framework of key competences for lifelong learning (EU 2020).

We are calling for proposals that deal with the following topics:
-Languages (including L2 Italian), education and training
-Languages (including L2 Italian), mediation and intercultural competences
-Languages and economics
- Languages and tourism
-Translation and localization for company internationalization
-Translation of written texts
-Languages and audiovisual translation (dubbing, subtitling, voice-over, audio description)
- Development of language competences for professional purposes: new tools and methodologies (ICT, CLIL, etc.)
- The role of professional language experts

Invited keynote speakers:
1. James Purpura (Columbia University, New York)
2. Félix San Vicente (Università di Bologna, sede Forlì)
3. Souzanne Romaine (University of Oxford)
4. Michele Gazzola (Humboldt University, Berlin)
Convenors: Prof. Carla Bagna and Prof. Beatrice Garzelli

Abstract guidelines:
- Max. 300 words, max. 5 references
