UNE 14-15, 2014: TAIWAN CONFERENCE ON

Language Education Policy Studies

 Call for PAPERS

Theme 1: The Language of Peace, Connectedness and Harmony, its Potentials and its Limits

Theme 2: Comparing Language Curricula in Various Countries

Theme 3: Multimedia and Foreign Language Education

Language Education Policy is a burgeoning field of scholarship that grounds its legitimation on broad frameworks such as Language Policy, Education Policy, Curriculum Studies and Critical Language Studies. It needs to define its conceptual and philosophical orientations and its foundational purposes to receive increasing recognition by educators and the public in response to growing societal interests in globalization and local forms of school violence that manifest in the way languages are treated.

This call for papers invites submissions that take an overview of the field of Language Education Policy as it may be informed by peace education, analyzing the emergence and gradual formation of the concept, the state of the field and visions for possible futures. It encourages submissions that utilize multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary approaches to study and research. 

A conceptual orientation is proposed to motivate language education curricula that transform school cultures into constructive learning communities and cultures of peace.  Language Education Policies can help repair the contextual, psychological, ideological and social fabric of human lives and societies impacted by misconceptions based on language ideologies and language status that lead to miscommunication, discrimination, social divisions, violence, war, and human struggle throughout both developed and developing countries. The field needs philosophical arguments that support such endeavor, demonstrations based on documents and empirical evidence.
