L2ML is accepting proposals for digital presentations!

Deadline to submit a proposal: January 6, 2023
Symposium dates: April 21-22, 2023
CERCLL is hosting the Second Language Multimodal Literacies Symposium (L2ML), an event that will bring together educators, practitioners, and researchers, who share common interests in exploring the role of multimodality in contexts of second or multiple language and culture learning. This free, two-day, virtual event will include a series of digital presentations and discussions, including three invited talks by experts in the fields of multimodal language and literacy education:
  • Denise Newfield (University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa), Poetry, Performance and Making in Second Language Learning
  • Ana Oskoz (University of Maryland Baltimore County, USA), Second Language Digital Literacies in a Multilingual, Multimodal World
  • Jennifer Rowsell (University of Sheffield, UK), The Comfort of Screens: Living and Learning with Multiple Languages on Screens
 See the L2ML site for abstracts and biographical statements.

The symposium will culminate in a panel discussion, where participants will consider future directions for multimodal scholarship and pedagogical practice in second language and multilingualism studies.
Symposium organizers are accepting proposals for virtual presentations–research studies, theoretical think pieces, and exemplary practices are all equally welcome. Contributions that respond to the following guiding questions are particularly encouraged:1) What models, frameworks, and concepts shape current understandings of multimodality and its potential roles in the learning of second or additional languages? What are the benefits and limits of different ways of understanding second language multimodal literacies?2) How can educators best integrate and acknowledge multimodal dimensions of languaging and language learning? What findings and new directions does current research offer us for answering this question?3) What modalities have been underrepresented in second language education and what possible roles might they play?
