Looking ahead — Spring 2015

WinterTreesHi all,

Welcome back and Happy new year! We had a great start to the academic year, with the screening of “Unequal Education” (co-sponsored with the Media and Social Change Lab) and our inaugural meeting of the multimodality study study. It was wonderful to meet some new people last semester and we hope to continue to grow our reach within and beyond TC.

This spring, we have an exciting lineup of events, including guest speakers and a continuation of our multimodality study group. We would also like to hear from you — what kinds of events or gatherings would support your ongoing inquiries into language and literacy research and practice?

Finally, the special announcement: Please note that the deadline for the Call for Papers for this year’s International Linguistics Association Conference — to be held at Teachers College in April! — has been extended to January 31st. See the following note from ILA President (and CMLL co-founder) Jo Anne Kleifgen:

Below is our second Call for Papers for the 60th Annual Conference of the ILA

Please note our plenary speakers: Ellen Bialystok, William Labov, Ray McDermott, and Jacob Mey. A special WORD Global Roundtable simulcast will include Michael Halliday, Ruqayia Hasan, and Jonathan J. Webster speaking from Beijing Normal University.

 Please submit your proposals and share with colleagues!

Thanks,
Jo Anne Kleifgen, President, ILA
Professor Emeritus of Linguistics and Education
Teachers College, Columbia University
