CALL FOR PAPERS

Immersion Education:
Pathways to Bilingualism & Beyond

October 16-18, 2008
Crowne Plaza Riverfront
St. Paul, Minnesota

Featured Speakers

                   Fred Genesee, McGill University
                   Philip Hoare, Hong Kong Institute of Education
                   Kauanoe KamanĒ and Bill "Pila" Wilson, University of Hawai'i

Language Center, University of Maryland

Language immersion education has emerged as a 
uniquely constituted, highly effective program 
model for launching students on the road to 
bilingualism, multilingualism and intercultural 
competence. School-based immersion programs 
follow a variety of paths, including one-way 
foreign language immersion, two-way bilingual 
immersion, and indigenous immersion for language 
and culture revitalization. While each pathway 
targets distinct socio-cultural contexts and 
educational needs, all are grounded in a set of 
core characteristics with a strong focus on 
subject matter learning as well as language 
development.

Under the leadership of two national centers in 
the U.S., CARLA (Center for Advanced Research on 
Language Acquisition, University of Minnesota) 
and CAL (Center for Applied Linguistics, 
Washington, D.C.), this third international 
conference on immersion education brings these 
pathways together to engage in meaningful 
dialogue and professional exchange across 
languages, levels, learner audiences, program 
models and sociopolitical contexts.

CARLA and CAL are currently seeking proposals for 
papers, discussion sessions, and symposia on 
aspects of language immersion education related 
to four overarching conference themes:

                   Immersion Pedagogy
                   Culture and Identity
                   Policy and Advocacy
                   Program Design and Evaluation

In addition to basic, applied and evaluation 
research, conference organizers welcome a range 
of practitioner perspectives including immersion 
teachers, administrators, curriculum 
coordinators, parents and specialists who work in 
immersion programs. Papers, presentations, 
discussion sessions, and symposia may report on 
data-based research, theoretical and conceptual 
analyses, or best practices in language immersion 
classrooms.

The deadline for submission of proposals is February 15, 2008.

                   More information and on-line 
submission instructions can be found at:
