    Rethinking Language, Diversity, and Education Conference

    Professor Michalis Damanakis
    Professor Peter Pericles Trifonas
    Professor Eleni Skourtou
    In our contemporary reality of ever expanding and compounding "multies" (multilingualism, multiculturalism, multimodality, multiliteracies, etc), how do we create pedagogical spaces that would nurture and enhance the linguistic communities and honour the cultural differences of students in the twenty-first century? What does it mean to rethink language diversity in education and how can we foster true inclusion in our increasingly linguistically diverse schools? This gathering will bring together emerging and established researchers around the practices and policies of language diversity in education with representatives of school boards, teacher associations, policy makers community leaders, teachers, and school administrators to engage issues of linguistic and cultural diversity that have created a new ground for teaching and learning. A rethinking of the pedagogical imperatives of language, diversity, and education in communal and global contexts wll enable new directions with respect to the question of difference, social justice and pedagogy in the new millennium.
