Website-banner Congress starts on May 28 and the annual meeting of the Canadian Association of Applied Linguistics starts in ten days. I’ve been thinking about these papers and program since November so I’m particularly excited to see the papers and symposia being presented this year. We also have really great plenaries from Dr Rahat Naqvi and Dr. Ryuko Kubota; a plenary by Dr. David Block jointly organized with the Canadian Association of University teachers of German; a joint symposium on assessment in support of learning in the language classroom with the Canadian Association of Language Assessment and also a joint panel session on the evening of Monday, May 20 with the Canadian Linguistic Association (CLA) and SSHRC on the language-related Calls to Action in the final report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The purpose of the session is to consider how applied linguists, linguists, Indigenous colleagues, SSHRC, and Canada’s post-secondary institutions can work together to address the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s language-related calls to action.I’m attaching the program for that joint session below.
