Invitation

The Department of Spanish and Portuguese, Anderson Languages and Technologies Center (ALTEC), The Department of Germanic and Slavic 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, interactive workshops, posters and technological tools showcases to be presented at the Second International Symposium on Languages for 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 lsp@colorado.edu.

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 communities etc.
