March 23, 2018 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

It is with pleasure that we announce a one-day conference on French linguistics to be held March 23 at Glendon College that we hope will mark the beginning of a new tradition. The conference will provide an opportunity for undergraduate students from Glendon and the University of Toronto to present their completed or in-progress research projects in a learned context before an audience of their peers. We encourage the submission of abstracts for oral presentations or posters (Click here for the Call for Papers) that will be evaluated by a jury of doctoral students and professors.

Along with student presentations, an invited bilingual talk, “Connecting the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and the Diplôme d’études en langue française to FSL Teaching and Learning in the Canadian Context: An Applied Linguistics Perspective”, will be given by Prof. Katherine Rehner of the University of Toronto at Mississauga, a graduate of Glendon.

This mini-conference is made possible by the financial support of the members of the Association for French Language Studies (AFLS) and follows on the international conference AFLS2017 held at Glendon this past August. AFLS is also providing financial support for a public talk “How Languages and Emotions affect the Heart of Multilinguals” to be given by Prof. Jean-Marc Dewaele (Birbeck College, University of London, UK) at Glendon on March 2.

Both events are free and we encourage individuals working in the various areas of French linguistics to attend. Registration for the mini-conference is, however, required in order to allow for appropriate planning. Please confirm your presence by replying at the following address :
