Glendon hosts French linguists mini-colloquium and conference

A one-day conference on French linguistics will be held at York University’s Glendon Campus on March 23, and presents guest speaker Katherine Rehner, who is an associate professor of language studies at the University of Toronto Mississauga.

The mini-colloquium, running 10:30am to 5pm will take place in room A301.

The conference will provide an opportunity for undergraduate students from Glendon and the University of Toronto to present their completed or in-progress research projects in a learned context before an audience of their peers. Abstracts for oral presentations or posters that were submitted will be evaluated by a jury of doctoral students and professors.

Along with student presentations, an invited bilingual talk, “Connecting the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and the Diplôme d’études en langue française to FSL Teaching and Learning in the Canadian Context: An Applied Linguistics Perspective,” will be delivered by Rehner at the University of Toronto at Mississauga, and a graduate of Glendon.

This mini-conference is made possible by the financial support of the members of the Association for French Language Studies (AFLS) and follows on the international conference AFLS2017 held at Glendon in August 2017.

This event is free and will be of specific interest to individuals working in the various areas of French linguistics. Registration for the mini-conference is required in order to allow for appropriate planning. Confirm your presence by replying at the following address: MCL@glendon.yorku.ca.
