Results of DYLAN Research by Lancaster University Published in Prestigious Language Policy Journal

Results of research conducted within the DYLAN Project by Lancaster University Researchers Michal Krzyzanowski and Ruth Wodak has just been published in the prestigious Language Policy journal listed on, inter alia, Journal Citation Reports and Social Sciences Citation Index. In their article “Political strategies and language policies: the European Union Lisbon strategy and its implications for the EU’s language and multilingualism policy” published in Language Policy 10(12), Krzyzanowski and Wodak explore the interplay between the politics and policies of multilingualism by looking at the role of political macro-strategies in shaping language and multilingualism policies in the European Union. Drawing on the extensive analyses conducted in the course of DYLAN research, the paper targets the relationship between the European Union’s 2000–2010 Lisbon Strategy on the European Knowledge-Based Economy and the content and scope of EU language and multilingualism policies of the same period.

7th AICLU conference - VII° Convegno AICLU -VII. AICLU-Tagung

The 7th AICLU conference from 7 to 9 July 2011 will be organized by the Language Centre of the Free University of Bolzano at the premises of the Faculty. The decision to organize such a conference in South-Tyrol was made plausible because of the historic, demographic and ethnic background and the somewhat natural vocation towards multilingualism of this province. The Free University of Bolzano with its ambitious trilingual approach (English, German and Italian are the languages of tuition) contributes strongly to the discussion on multilingualism. The conference will offer various occasions to get to know the organizing university and to exchange ideas on topics such as CLIL and innovation in language teaching in Italian universities.

Il VII Convegno AICLU dal titolo “Multilinguismo, CLIL e innovazione didattica” verrà organizzato dal Centro linguistico della Libera Università di Bolzano e si svolgerà dal 7 al 9 luglio 2011 presso la sede della Facoltà di Scienze della Formazione a Bressanone.
Per vari aspetti il luogo si presta ad una riflessione approfondita sul multilinguismo in ambito universitario. L’Alto Adige ha una vocazione bi– e multilingue forte e quasi naturale dal punto di vista linguistico, demografico ed etnico. Il multilinguismo è sempre al centro dell’attenzione. La Libera Università di Bolzano si inserisce in questo contesto con un progetto trilinuge molto ambizioso con inglese, italiano e tedesco come lingue di insegnamento. Il convegno quindi darà la possibilità di conoscere meglio l’approccio trilingue dell’ateneo ospitante, di confrontarsi su teoria e la prassi del Content Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) ed su altri temi importanti per i centri linguistici universitari in Italia.

Die 7. AICLU-Tagung wird vom Sprachenzentrum der Freien Universität Bozen ausgerichtet und findet vom 7. Bis 9. Juli 2011 am Sitz der Bildungswissenschaftlichen Fakultät in Brixen statt. Die Wahl des Tagungsortes fiel aus mehreren Gründen leicht, wenn es um das Thema Mehrsprachigkeit im Hochschulbereich geht, denn Südtirol hat zum einen starken historischen, ethnischen und demografischen Bezug zu sprachlichen Fragen. Die Freie Universität Bozen fügt sich mit ihrem ambitionierten Modell der Dreisprachigkeit mit Deutsch, Englisch und Italienisch als Unterrichtssprachen in diesen Kontext ein. Die Tagung bietet somit die Möglichkeit, den Tagungsort und die Freie Universität Bozen besser kennen zu lernen und sich gleichzeitig über Theorie und Praxis des universitären Sach-Fach-Unterrichts (CLIL) und andere Themen auszutauschen, die für die italienischen Universitäts-Sprachenzentren von Belang sind.
