Call For Papers

For the 2nd edition of our International Conference on Teaching Literature in English for Young Learners: fostering cultural awareness, we are asking literature to lend us a hand in finding our bearings among the debates aroused by cultural awareness in English language education. We are looking for real cases of workshops in which concrete children books have been drawn on to integrate language and culture in innovative and successful ways. Not one interpretation of cultural awareness will be favored in advance, since our aim is that teachers and researchers from all over the world present and justify their own views on the matter, by analyzing their real classroom experiences. Student-centered pedagogical orientations, however, will be favored when choosing among the proposals.
Instructions for registration are available at the conference website: www.uv.es/teachlit

Registration fees: Attendance 40 € / Presentation of papers: 95 € (before 30 March 2015) 120 € (before 10 May)

Proposals from 300 to 500 words should be sent to teachlit2015@gmail.com before 15 Jan 2015. All abstracts will be peer-reviewed, and notification of acceptance will be sent before 15 Feb.

We suggest the following subject matters, though papers addressing the theme from other perspectives are also welcome:

— Fostering culture through children's literature
— Bridging home and foreign cultural backgrounds: Getting rid of the foreignness
— Culturally-aware pedagogies
— Critical and cultural literacies
— Muticultural, intercultural and intracultural realities
— The value of literary study in making students more aware of the concept of culture
— Literature for children: Education for global citizenship.
A selection of papers will be published as a volume in a prestigious international publication to be determined.
