II IMFLIT - International Meeting on Foreign Language Learning in Tandem
Transcultural Language Learning: Toward Global Citizenship in (e)Tandem

March 22-24, 2018  | University of Miami


Learning foreign languages in-tandem has been used by many students and professionals, since it was developed in Europe in the seventies and eighties. Foreign language learning in-tandem is based on principles of peer collaboration, autonomy, and reciprocity with two speakers of different languages collaborate to learn the language of each other. In the present era of globalization, the development of new ICTs – Information Communication Technologies - have eliminated trans-geographical and transnational borders, providing foreign language teachers and students with new opportunities for communication and contact between languages and cultures. When these principles of collaboration and reciprocity are used in a virtual environment through the use of videoconferencing applications (like Skype), this context is called teletandem.

The objective of this international meeting is to offer a context for researchers who are currently developing studies on teletandem learning to share their ideas and research progress with other colleagues, particularly (but not exclusively) those who are working with the developments of technology and foreign language learning in-tandem.

 ‌Cartography as Epistemology: Thinking about Caribbean Spaces

Friday, April 20th | Lowe Art Museum


What do maps tell us about how place and space are being known and invented?  How do maps build up identities? Why is this important?

After a guided tour and introduction to the exhibit “Antillean Visions,” three internationally renowned scholars in Latin American and Caribbean Colonial Studies will be talking about Caribbean cartographies. Their presentations will focus on maps as forms of knowing, inventing and defining Caribbean spaces after 1492, and how these forms still affect Caribbean identities today.
