6th International Conference ‘Crossroads of Languages and Cultures’ (CLC6): Plurilingualism, Variation, Spaces of Literacy

The 6th International Conference ‘Crossroads of Languages and Cultures’ (CLC6) will take place at the online between September 2 and September 4 2021. The main theme of CLC6 is the charting of the relationship between plurilingualism, linguistic variation, hybrid linguistic performances and alternative literacies. The hybridity and superdiversity of the contemporary linguistic landscape has been long acknowledged. Do language pedagogies  treat language as a complex semiotic resource? Do such pedagogies forge links between pluri- or multilingualism, linguistic variation, translanguaging and alternative literacy practices within and outside of the school context? Do such extant models ultimately debunk dominant literacy policies and practices?

We welcome papers on any aspect of multilingualism, linguistic variation and their place in school, at home and in alternative literacy sites. We also welcome proposals for a number of symposia and workshops  on these or related themes.

Crossroads CLC6 is organized by the University of Cyprus (www.ucy.ac.cy/en/) and the Open University of Cyprus (https://www.ouc.ac.cy/web/guest/home), with the cooperation of Polydromo (http://polydromo.web.auth.gr/index.php/el-gr/).

Τhe languages of the conference are English and Greek.
