UPDATE: due to the Covid-19 health situation we have regrettably had to postpone the face-to-face workshop in June. We are however planning to re-shape the June event as a virtual workshop - see full declaration below.
We’re very sorry to announce that we are not going to be able to hold the face-to-face ‘Disrupting digital monolingualism’ workshop as planned in June due to the Covid-19 health situation. We are very disappointed as the event had sparked significant interest and some really interesting submissions to our call for proposals, but it would be irresponsible for us to press ahead with this in the current context.
We are currently considering all the options, and we may hold a face-to-face event in the future, but for now our preference is to hold a virtual event on the same dates with roughly the same overall structure. We’re still working out the details, but we are planning to hold a series of both synchronous/live and asynchronous/pre-recorded interventions, using a combination of audiovisual and text-based tools. We thought we’d give you a quick update now - we’ll publish more information on the website soon.
In light of the current situation we are extending the deadline for proposals to 1 April.
We believe this still represents an excellent opportunity to collectively make a mutually enriching and inspiring contribution to discussions about digital multilingualism.
We do hope you can take part in this re-organised virtual event on June 16th and 17th. Stay healthy and safe!
All the best
Paul Spence and Renata Brandao (on behalf of the organising committee)
