Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies

Study/ residence abroad is a major and growing feature of higher education today, with an estimated 3.7million students participating annually. The European Union has set a target of 20 per cent of students undertaking some form of study/residence abroad, and some countries are already surpassing this level.

Study/ residence abroad can be a life-changing experience for participants, leading to academic, cultural, intercultural, linguistic, personal and professional gains (BA-UCML, 2012). At the same time, in the UK some student groups remain reluctant to participate, and those who do participate benefit from the experience to varying degrees. The design of programmes and support systems for students abroad can significantly affect their experience and the benefit they derive from it.

This conference arises from “LANGSNAP”, a project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (research award number: RES-062-23-2996) , based at the University of Southampton from 2011-13, which has tracked a cohort of Anglophone students during residence abroad in France, Spain and Mexico, and studied their social integration and its consequences for their linguistic development in varying settings. The conference is intended for researchers on language learning/ multilingualism, program administrators, and educational professionals interested in residence/study abroad and interactions between social processes and language development. One major strand of the conference will focus on language learning during residence abroad, and will include presentation of LANGSNAP project results alongside other research presentations. A second strand will focus on issues to do with the design and effective management of residence abroad programmes. The conference will be preceded by a business meeting of the AILA Research Network “Study Abroad and Language Acquisition”.

The conference will take place at the Avenue Campus, University of Southampton, United Kingdom. Details of the location are available at: http://www.southampton.ac.uk/visitus/campuses/avenue.html

Registration and accommodation details to follow.


Call for papers

The organizers invite proposals for papers and posters related to residence/study abroad, relevant to these two main strands.

Please include a title, abstract (300 words), and short summary (50 words) for both paper and poster submissions.

Poster presenters will have 45 minutes to present their work.
