Registration is open for CERCLL’s eighth International Conference on the Development and Assessment of Intercultural Competence, a virtual event taking place January 27-30, 2022, on the theme of Decentering Mobility in Intercultural Education: Engagement, Equity, and Access.

This event will focus on the ways in which intercultural communication and the teaching and learning thereof have been shaped through mobility – both virtual and physical. In particular, presentations address how the changing state of intercultural communication has been shaped by a world that is simultaneously more and less mobile, for example, due to differences in access among learners or to changing circumstances, such as the current global health crisis.
