The Consortium for Teaching and Learning is pleased to announce this year's winner in the annual workshop competition it funds. The winning proposal entitled Language Learning and Teaching in Urban and Linguistic Landscapes was submitted by Lee B. Abraham, Co-Director of the Spanish Language Program and Lecturer in Spanish in the Department of Latin American and Iberian Cultures at Columbia University.
The proposal made a compelling argument about the importance of analyzing language in public spaces in order to understand its socioeconomic and cultural coordinates but also in order to refocus language learners’ attention to the importance of the social contexts in which meaning and identities are constructed.
The workshop will take place at Columbia University during AY 2016-2017. More to follow as the date and the program are finalized.
