The English Department and the Centre for Teacher Education and Professional Development of the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Niš, are glad to invite you to the Third international conference Teaching Languages and Cultures in the Post-method Era: Challenges and Perspectives (TLC 2018), to be held on October 26-27 2018, at the Faculty of Philosophy in Niš. We hope to offer once again a multi-disciplinary forum that will bring scholars, researchers and practitioners together, to present and discuss latest research, policies and practices in the field of language and culture.
It is our honour to announce two keynote speakers for the conference:
Marshall Toman, Full Professor at the English Department, University of Wisconsin-River Falls, holds a PhD in American Literature from Boston College. His areas of specialization are the 20th century American Literature, short story, Eastern European literature and international film. He taught at Palacky University and Masaryk University in the Czech Republic as a Senior Lecturer in the Fulbright program, 1997-98.
Slobodanka Dimova, Associate Professor at the Department of English, Germanic and Romance Studies, University of Copenhagen, Center for Internationalisation and Parallel Language Use. Her research interests are oral fluency, oral language proficiency, oral language testing, English in higher education, language policy.
Abstracts are invited for individual (or co-authored) papers and workshops on theoretical or applied aspects of foreign language learning and teaching, including (but not limited to) teaching methodologies, developing (intercultural) communicative competence, assessing language and culture, teacher training and professional development, and language policies.
We encourage submissions that approach these topics from various perspectives; we also welcome presentations on topics from any other field or discipline related to or reflected in language and culture teaching.
Although we are devoted to promoting linguistic and cultural diversity, for practical reasons of communicating across languages the official language of the conference is English.
Each presentation will be allotted 20 minutes, 15 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for discussion after each presentation.
Workshops will be organized as 60-minute sessions, and the number of participants will be limited by the workshop author(s).
