4th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language
The Fourth National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language (SSHL) will be held at the University of California, Irvine February 16th - 18th, 2017. Professor Julio Torres, Assistant Professor of Spanish Applied Linguistics and Director of the Spanish Language Program at UCI, invites you to participate in this K-16 community-oriented meeting. Activities include research presentations from a number of fields within linguistics and pedagogy, workshops on conducting action research in the classroom, task-based language teaching, translanguaging approaches to heritage language pedagogy, and a Creative Writing Contest.

The Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language (SSHL) is an intellectual forum for the discussion of both the variable linguistic reality of Spanish heritage bilingualism in the United States (and elsewhere) and the diverse pedagogical needs of students of Spanish as a heritage language. Researchers and educators in K-12 and higher education share theoretical and practical approaches to the study of Spanish as a heritage language from perspectives of  various disciplines, including Second Language Acquisition, Sociolinguistics, Psycholinguistics, and Applied Linguistics, among others. The SSHL provides a space to bridge the gap between research findings and the praxis of heritage language teaching, allowing participants to collaborate effectively towards the implementation of pedagogies that allow heritage learners not only to develop their language proficiency but also to reflect their own identity formation within a context of validation and empowerment.

Call for Papers: ​Individual papers will consist of 20 minutes for presentations and 10 minutes for Q&A. We invite abstracts for paper presentations related to Spanish heritage language bilingualism in any of the following areas:

Applied Linguistics
General Linguistics
Language Acquisition
Linguistic Theories
Pedagogy
Psycholinguistics
​Sociolinguistics
