The Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona hosted 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 explored the linguistic and cultural atmosphere of higher education institutions where the social environment may demand the use of two or more languages. This symposium aimed 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: Heath Rose (U. Oxford, UK), Joyce Kling & Sanne Larsen (U. Copenhagen), Helen Basturkmen (U. Auckland), Carmen Pérez & Miriea Trenchs (UPF), Robert Wilkinson & René Gabriëls (Maastricht U), Samantha Curle (U. Oxford), Monica Clua (U. Internacional de Catalunya), and Balbina Moncada (U. Lleida).
Slides of the presentations will be available in the Member Zone shortly.
