    Due date for abstracts: 28 March 2019

    Call for papers/abstracts:Over the last decade, record numbers of “foreign” language programs have been closed down. How can we become more effective advocates for the study of languages other than English at the college level? How can/should we address this within the space of the classroom itself? What types of pedagogical techniques/activities might we implement outside the classroom in order to advocate more effectively on behalf of our institutional programs and the disciplines they represent? What connections might there be between effective assessment of student learning and effective advocacy on behalf of programs?
