Languages and Literatures, the Program on International Affairs and
Leeds Global Initiatives at the University of Colorado Boulder along
with the University of Colorado Denver CIBER invite proposals from
educators, scholars, publishers and language policy makers and leaders
worldwide for individual papers, panels, round table discussions,

Specific Purposes (LSP-2014).
- The deadline for receipt of proposals is Monday, October 31, 2013.
- Proposals will be accepted through the online submission system at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Successful proposals will clearly indicate the relationship of the
presentation to the core symposium themes. Presentations should provide
an opportunity for symposium participants to engage with some of the
challenging and fundamental questions at the intersection of scholarship
and the teaching and learning of LSP.
Priority will be given to proposals that address the interdisciplinary nature of LSP Studies through the following focus areas:
- LSP Theory
- Proposals should address the evolution of principles, theories and
modes which will serve to explain and predict what Languages for
Special Purposes is and will be.
- LSP Methodology
- Proposals should address the interplay with or adaptation of any
of the variety of second language acquisition, experiential learning
practices etc. to LSP methodology as well as studies which compare the
success of these various approaches in the LSP field.
- LSP Content
- Proposals should address the development of Intercultural
Competence through the interplay between Special Purpose content (i.e.
business, medical, legal, translation, academic, etc) and broader bodies
of academic research related to the cultural perspectives, practices,
and products of the pertinent geographical region.
- LSP Institutional Structures
Proposals in this area should address transformation of
traditional language/literature programs and/or approaches to LSP
research and studies offered outside the exclusive confines of the
traditional University Academic language/literature department i.e.
Language Technology Centers, CLAC and LAC programs, Language Flagships,
hybrid and on-line learning, study abroad, community-based learning,
internships, service learning, residential programs, social networking
