International Conference on Bilingualism: Language and Heritage
December 18-19, 2017
Chinese University of Hong Kong
The International Conference on Bilingualism: Language and Heritage is an inaugural conference that officially launches the newly established University of Cambridge - Chinese University of Hong Kong Joint Laboratory for Bilingualism (JLB). We aim to provide an international forum to promote and disseminate research in bilingualism across the lifespan from infancy to early childhood and adulthood with a focus on the acquisition of Chinese across linguistically diverse bilingual and multilingual contexts. The theme of the conference features bilingualism through the lens of the intricate relationship of language and heritage, in particular, the acquisition of language as a way to preserve and maintain a speaker and community's heritage and the challenges posed to language learners, researchers and educators.
The conference also features two panels that will be of interest to a wide spectrum of audience from diverse disciplines as well as the general public. The panels bring together researchers and practitioners from different countries including Australia, UK, USA, Hong Kong and Singapore to give an international perspective on issues in nurturing bilingualism in early childhood and heritage bilingualism across diverse contexts.
Panel I: Bilingualism in early childhood education: research and practice
Panel II: Heritage bilingualism, education and society
The organizers are inviting abstract submissions for poster presentations at the Conference. Submissions are invited on any of the following topics:
• childhood bilingualism and multilingualism
• second language acquisition
• third language acquisition
• heritage bilingualism
• language contact and bilingualism
• language shift and maintenance
• bilingual education
• bilingual language policy
The submission deadline is October 16, 2017.
