Language and language choices play a significant yet often unacknowledged role in fostering inequality. The goal of this symposium is to highlight work at the CUNY Graduate Center that focuses on multilingualism and multilingual approaches as an effective way to combat inequality of access.
Proposals for a 10 or 20 minute presentation are welcome from members of the GC community. Papers and presentations should inform an audience of CUNY students and faculty, educational and community leaders, about the value and relevance of language and literacy projects conducted at the Graduate Center to New York’s multilingual population.
Abstracts are due May 20, 2016 and should be sent to Christen Madsen at email@example.com. Read more
