Why does SLA need a bi/multilingual turn?
Time: 03:30pm - 04:30pm
Place: IMU Oak Room
Lourdes Ortega (Georgetown University)In this talk I evaluate the charge of a monolingual bias in the field of second language acquisition (SLA) and explore the desirability and consequences of enabling a bi/multilingual turn in the future. I begin by examining what assumptions about the nature of nativeness, monolingualism, and bilingualism explicitly or implicitly inform traditional SLA work, and how selected constructs, methodological choices, and discourse framings support or hamper a bilingual outlook on additional language development. I then identify disciplinary strategies that I argue will be needed in order to be able to reframe additional language learning as the emergence of late bilingualism, and to have a more bilingually and multilingually oriented field of SLA in the future.

Daniel SuslakA contrastive exploration of two related languages spoken in Southern Mexico and the politics of speaking indigenous Mexican languages in the 21st century. The first one, Ayöök, is spoken by a small but vibrant and highly organized community. The second, Nuumte Oote, has become a sort of poster child for the cause of dying languages.
