Title: Capitalising on Lessons Learnt from the COVID-19 Crisis: Increasing Access to Education to Learners with Disabilities in Africa

COVID-19 has disrupted education systems on a global scale, creating unexpected challenges. Approximately 1.6 billion children around the world have been unable to attend school due to COVID-19 lockdowns, with schools required to make rapid adjustments in the move to online teaching and learning. As African countries worked toward managing learning continuity, learners with disabilities seemed to have been further marginalised. However, the COVID-19 pandemic seems to have presented a unique opportunity to re-think emergency planning for accessible and inclusive education. This presentation examines the challenges faced by learners with disabilities in accessing education during COVID-19 induced lockdown in Africa. It also proffers strategies that can be adopted to make education more disability inclusive.

Ted Schatzki, Department of Philosophy, University of Kentucky

Title: The Trajectories of a Life

This presentation combines a phenomenological account of life trajectories with a practice theory approach to the social contexts in which life trajectories occur to illuminate key features of the phenomena studied by life course research. The discussion construes life trajectories, not as the events and transitions that make up the progress of life in specific life domains, but as central dimensions of a life qua continually unfolding entity. It subjects three types of trajectories so construed to analysis: space-time paths, successions of actions, and past-future arcs. It then explores the contextualization of such trajectories in constellations of social practices. The presentation concludes by situating life and its trajectories in the causal order of society and reflecting on the advantages of using theories of practices in this context.

Title: Rethinking ‘Diversity’ in the cultural industries
While the ‘diversity’ paradigm is shaping policy across public and public sectors in Western contexts, it is particularly pronounced in the creative and cultural industries. In the UK, such industries have long been aware of, to paraphrase former BBC Director General Greg Dyke, their hideous whiteness. As a consequence, a plethora of initiatives have been launched to improve the racial and ethnic composition of the cultural workforce. Yet such initiatives are having little impact on the representation of racially minoritised groups, whether on- or off-screen. In this paper, drawing from my research into the experiences of Black, Asian and racialised people who work in British cultural industries, I highlight the limitations of diversity policies. But rather than a case of such policies/initiatives not working, I argue that diversity as a discourse - that is, a form of power/knowledge - is the means through which existing social hierarchies (and racial inequalities) remain intact.

Lynn Mario T. Menezes de Souza, Professor of Language Education at the University of São Paulo, Brazil

Title: Navigating difference in language, literature and literacy

This seminar will focus on difference as a construct of self and how a non-understanding of this can lead to a perception of difference as an external characteristic only of others. The seminar will focus on how ‘difference’ in dealing with others can be better understood as 'gaps' in one’s knowledge which need to be navigated. Examples from language, literature and literacy will be discussed.

Besides Language Education Professor Lynn Mario T. Menezes de Souza's research interests lie in language and educational policy and politics, literacy, literary theory and interculturality. His recent publications include ‘De-universalizing the Decolonial’ (in Gragoatá 2021) and 'Glocal Languages and Critical Intercultural Awareness: The South Answers Back' (Routledge 2019). He currently co-coordinates the bi-national (Brazil-South África) research group Rethinking Multilingualism and Being Human.

Workshop

1st Exploratory Workshop on Ethics and Values in Educational Data-Driven Practices

Venue: VIA University College, Århus, Denmark

The project “Ethics and Values in educational data-driven practices: Conceptual, Methodological and Pragmatic Explorations” funded by the Swedish Vetenskapsrådet aims to explore useful concepts, methods, and interventions for researching ethics and values in data-driven education. It will consist of a blend of keynote presentations, paper presentations, and discussions among participants.

We have singled out a range of concepts that will be central for exploring ethics and values in educational data-driven practices. These are – but are not limited to: practices, care, imaginaries/imagination, aesthetics, and Bildung. The overall research question guiding the workshop is: Which concepts and notions support nuanced discussions about values reflected in emerging educational sociotechnical imaginaries?

Peter De Costa, Department of Linguistics, Germanic, Slavic, Asian and African Languages, Michigan State University (MSU)

Title: Unpacking Profit and Pride in EMI Higher Education: How Universities Manage this Precarious Balancing Act

In a neoliberal era marked by a global expansion of higher education, many Western based universities aggressively opened EMI satellite campuses in Asia and the Middle East. Inspired by profit and the need to chase the foreign tuition dollar, such expansionary efforts have met with different degrees of success. However, as world economic growth starts to recede and nationalist sentiments rise, we have witnessed a curtailing, and in some cases withdrawal, of these transnational endeavours. Adopting an ecological approach (Han, De Costa & Cui, 2019) to better understand this educational phenomenon, I investigate how English monolingual biases and an emergent interest and pride in local languages within several countries that have hosted joint venture foreign campuses have been negotiated. Specifically, I explore the ways in which different social actors – students, faculty and administrators – engage in complex identity work that often results in individuals being sorted and sieved according to the various levels of capital that they possess. These actors’ strategic policy and pedagogical decisions will also be unpacked against mounting internal pressures by governments to raise the standards of local universities in the face of stiff global university ranking competition.

 

Biography: Peter I. De Costa is an Associate Professor in the Department of Linguistics, Languages & Cultures and the Department of Teacher Education at Michigan State University. His research areas include emotions, identity, ideology and ethics in educational linguistics. He also studies social (in)justice issues.

Family multilingualism through a ‘translingual lens’: Current theoretical orientations and challenges

In the past five years or so, sociolinguistic approaches to family multilingualism have been marked by an ever-increasing diversity of theoretical orientations (Curdt-Christiansen 2018, Lanza and Lomeu Gomes 2020). Among these orientations, one that has received particular attention takes a practice-based perspective and draws on understandings of languages as fluid, dynamic, and localised (as opposed to abstract entities that can be neatly separated, counted, and labelled). Building on this discussion, in the first part of this seminar, I point to the ways in which the employment of a ‘translingual lens’ can be useful in making sense of the connections between language practices and ideologies of family members in multilingual houses. In particular, I present part of a three-year ethnographically oriented study undertaken in Oslo, Norway to discuss how monoglossic language ideologies may influence parent-child interactions in the home (Lomeu Gomes 2020). This analytical move may illuminate certain questions overlooked by current literature on child bilingualism. Yet, its employment risks reifying taken-for-granted understandings of language and losing its innovative explanatory potential (Bagga-Gupta and Messina Dahlberg 2018, Pennycook 2016). In the second, and final, part of the seminar, the following question is posed: to what extent can the employment of a ‘translingual lens’ be reconciled with the efforts of parents who aim at fostering practices that may lead to the maintenance of the so-called home language(s)? Rather than reaching definite answers, it is expected that the discussion in this seminar triggers reflections concerning the challenging task of doing socially relevant research that may inform practices in the home and in society at large.

Title: Analysing communicative repertoires and social change. The dynamics of language regimes in Timor-Leste

Seminar reading:

Agha, A. (2004). Registers of Language. In: DURANTI, A. (Ed.) A Companion to Linguistic Anthropology (p. 23-45), Oxford: Blackwell. (Available from susanne.smithberger@ju.se on request).

Analysing communicative repertoires and social change. The dynamics of language regimes in Timor-Leste

Timor-Leste is a small Southeast Asian country, which became independent in 2002, its Constitution recognizes two languages as official, Portuguese, which was chosen because of its history in the territory and Tetun, a standardized version of a local language variety. Beyond the official languages, the Constitution gives the status of working languages to English and Indonesian and of national languages to the two dozens of different local indigenous languages. In this multilingual setting, the use of these different languages and the multiple forms of transidiomatic practices - or in other words, transglossic practices (Cox and Assis-Peterson, 2007) - regulate social interactions in diverse social contexts. The main aim of this paper is to characterize hegemonic language ideologies about these languages and these different transglossic practices and their role in the mediation of communicative practices, the construction of linguistic hierarchies and social distinction in the country. This research is based on an ethnographic study about the local language in education policies, which had a focus on the role of Portuguese language teachers in their implementation. The data to be analysed are the metasociolinguistic stances (Jaffe, 2009) of these language teachers in life narratives and the way they position themselves in relation to the different local languages and transglossic practices. Their different stances index the ways the use of different languages are metapragmatically regulated (Wortham, 2001), structuring a specific local language regime (Kroskrity, 2000), but also to the metapragmatics of transglossic practices and the ways they can be part of new processes of enregisterment (Agha, 2004) and the construction of new language regimes. These dynamics of shift in language ideologies in the country points out for a process of social change in the value of languages, language practices and their speakers along the time and the ways that legitimate languages and legitimate speakers are or can be potentially constructed in these different timescales. If by one side, these language regimes can exclude as they are constantly reaffirming borders, by the other side, there are also possibilities for the subversion and redrawing of identities through the creative use of language resources.
