Faithful to the tradition, the young researchers of the LIDILEM (LInguistique et DIdactique des Langues Etrangères et Maternelles, Linguistics and Teaching Native and Foreign Languages) organise a new edition of the International Conference of Young Researchers in Language Teaching and Linguistics (CEDIL), which will take place from the 30th of May to the 1st of June 2018 at the Grenoble Alpes University.
This scientific event, held every four years, provides an opportunity for useful discussions within the international young research community as it allows them to access to the scientific network of their field as well as to discover new methodologies of work (data collection and data processing, providing evidence based corpora etc.). This event also contributes to the training of young researchers while encouraging real scientific progress.
This fourth CEDIL edition will be devoted to digital technologies and discuss major contemporary issue : « What have digital technologies changed ? Linguistic and language teaching perspectives ».
Call for papers
The pervasiveness of digital tools in everyday life has impacted the relation to language and modified certain language uses. This change affects linguistic and teaching practices as well as language research (methodology and subjects). We invite young researchers to propose their analysis, with respect to their research field, of the topics developed below.
THEME 1: digital technologies in research methodology
Research methodologies in language science have integrated digital tools and resources paving the way to new approaches.
THEME 2: digital technologies in native and foreign language teaching
Language teaching practices and learning situations have been modified with the introduction of digital technologies.
THEME 3: digital technologies in language practices
Digital technologies have brought about new practices and new contexts of communication, resulting in new language variants (SMS, tweets etc.) which expand the field of linguistic analysis.
Presentations will be in French or in English.
This conference is for young researchers only (doctoral students and young doctors having presented their thesis within the last two years). Paper proposals written in French or in English should be two pages maximum (bibliography included) and respect the style sheet available on the conference website. Papers should be submitted on this site as well, before the 15th of November 2017.
