大华府中文教师学会2019年十周年年会 约稿通知

Chinese Language Teachers Association – National Capital Region (CLTA-NCR) Decennial Symposium 2019

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the May Fourth Movement, when modern Chinese intellectuals embarked on major linguistic reforms including the exhaustive promotion of Baihuawen (“vernacular writing”). Now a century later, Chinese as a Critical Language faces new opportunities and challenges in the context of globalization and rapid technological advancement. This year is also the tenth anniversary of the Chinese Language Teachers Association – National Capital Region (CLTA-NCR), which, drawing on the DC metropolitan area’s strengths, has become a major regional organization for Chinese language professionals. To celebrate both events and to further enhance the cultural exchanges between China and the US, we are organizing a symposium on Saturday, October 19, 2019 with the theme “From Baihuawen to Critical Language: One Hundred Years of Chinese Language Education”.

We are pleased to have Prof. Chih-p’ing Chou of Princeton University as our keynote speaker, and Prof. Mei Kong of University of Maryland as our invited speaker. They will deliver talks in the morning sessions of the symposium. The afternoon sessions of the symposium will feature individual and panel presentations.

We cordially invite researchers, experts, language professionals, and anyone interested  to participate and present their research at the CLTA-NCR Decennial Symposium 2019. The presentation can be on any topic related to Chinese language education in both K-12 and college settings, e.g., pedagogical challenges and solutions in teaching Chinese characters, curriculum articulation and connection between K-12 and higher education, teacher training and classroom management, second language acquisition, linguistic research, etc. We especially welcome proposals that address the two conference themes, i.e. Baihuawen and Critical Language.
