The research grants are funded by ACTFL. Below each priority area (click “See More”) is a list of sample research topics; research studies need not be limited to these topics.

Call for Papers for PMLA Special Topic: Cultures of Reading

The Editorial Board of PMLA, the journal of the Modern Language Association, invites essays for the journal’s forthcoming special topic Cultures of Reading. Coordinators: Evelyne Ender (Hunter Coll., City Univ. of New York) and Deidre Lynch (Harvard Univ.) Deadline for submissions: November 7, 2016. See More▼

What diverse practices, desires, and norms are concealed by the too familiar gerund in this title? What culturally specific and historically contingent institutions and techniques shape individuals’ encounters with their reading matter? Do those encounters serve ends beyond the decoding of meanings or the closing of a hermeneutic circle? Questions like these energize an emergent field of inquiry that involves, among others, literary critics, book historians, anthropologists, and scholars of religion.

Symposium: Deutsch als Fremdsprache: Erfahrungen, Praxis, Zukunft
February 24–25, 2017, University of Puerto Rico, San Juan, PR, Campus Rio Piedras

Wir laden DeutschlehrerInnen von Universitäten, Sprachschulen und Highschools ein. Wir bitten um kurze Vorschläge (abstracts), nicht länger als eine halbe Seite. Einsendungen bitte an Proposal deadline: December 7, 2016. See More▼

Wir suchen konkrete Beispiele aus der eigenen Arbeit im Deutschunterricht: Was oder welche Themen haben sich bei euch in der Praxis bewährt? Welche Empfehlungen habe ich, um den Deutschunterricht interessanter zu machen? Was können wir tun, um Deutsch als Fremdsprache zu fördern und/oder auszubauen? Was sind die dringensten Probleme in meinem Department/Programm und welche Lösungsmöglichkeiten gibt es? Welche Fehler sind in der Vergangenheit gemacht worden?

Wir wollen uns austauschen und diskutieren. Deshalb sind wir nicht an langen Research Papers interessiert. Damit genug Zeit für einen regen Austausch und Diskussionen bleibt, sollten Beiträge und Präsentationen nicht länger als 15 Minuten dauern. Die Anzahl der TeilnehmerInnen ist begrenzt.

Puerto Rico ist Commonwealth der U.S.A.; es gelten die entsprechenden Gesetze und Einreisebestimmungen (kein Reisepass oder Visa für U.S. Bürger erforderlich).
