At this year’s conference, we will have four separate tracks for papers and presentations, three related to our overall theme of “Diversity in Language,” and one honoring our host culture and its region.
I. Diversity in Language A): Diversity of Learners
II. Diversity in Language B): Diversity of Learning
III. Diversity in Language C): Diversity of Languages
IV. Languages, Literature, and Culture of Slovenia and its neighbours
Track I. Diversity in Language A): Diversity of Learners
In this track, we would like to open discussions and present research about issues, concerns, and considerations that are faced specifically because of age, race, gender, belief system, sexuality, ethnicity or due to disabilities etc. – who may face special challenges in learning (specific) languages.
If you have a paper that you passionately feel comes under this topic please submit it here.
Track II. Diversity in Language B): Diversity of Learning
In this track, we would like to open discussions and present research about a variety of new and innovative techniques, strategies, and methods for learning languages.
Track III. Diversity in Language C): Diversity of Languages
In this track, we would like to open discussions and present research about learning and maintaining languages from different families or cultures, as well as learning languages that are non-scripted, endangered, minority, being revived, etc.
Track IV: Languages and Literature of Slovenia and its neighbours
At the Polyglot Conference, we seek to celebrate the regional languages and cultures of our host country and its wider region. Thus, topics in this track might include Slovene, Hungarian, Romani, Italian, Serbian and Croatian languages and linguistics first and foremost, but also other Balkan, Germanic or Romance languages and dialects, the literature of these and other related peoples, distinctive cultural features of speakers of these languages, and so on.
In this area, we hope to arrange special intensive courses in Slovene for participants, and we invite scholars in the field of applied linguistics and the media to inform us of their interest in documenting the process.
Finally, if you feel you have a topic that would be useful and interesting to present at the Polyglot Conference, you may also submit your proposal under the "Other" category for our consideration.
