Croatian Language, Literature and Culture, within the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies at the University of Waterloo, is pleased to announce its second Undergraduate Symposium. Please see the poster for further details.
The monolingual disposition (Gogolin, 1994) of our societies and school systems is a big obstacle on the way to innovation in language education. In particular, it constitutes a filter that prevents appreciation of linguistic and cultural diversity and fails to acknowledge learners’ resources and funds of knowledge. However, a movement away from a linear vision of language education into a more dynamic and flexible one capable of dealing with multilingual classes and plurilingual individuals is in place.
The Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies is pleased to present a talk by historian Blanka Matkovic, PhD in Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick, UK, focusing on Croatian war veterans and their role in Croatian society after the Homeland War. Please see the poster for further details.
