The Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona will host this year’s ICLHE Annual General Meeting, together with an exciting Symposium, entitled “Plurality and singularity: Multilingual policies and specific situated academic actions”.
The symposium explores the linguistic and cultural atmosphere of higher education institutions where the social environment may demand the use of two or more languages. This symposium wants to explore how multilingual policies can support universities in recognizing and developing their own specificities in a highly globalized world. How can universities make good use of the diversity of languages and cultures in their community to strengthen their uniqueness?
Speakers include Josep Anton Fernández (Inst. Ramon Llull), Joyce Kling & Sanne Larsen (U. Copenhagen), Helen Basturkmen (U. Auckland), and Robert Wilkinson & René Gabriëls (Maastricht U).
