Research and Conferences

CLIC relies on the expertise of research postdoctoral fellows to carry out innovative research in second language acquisition, interactional competence, intercultural communication, language instruction methodologies, and language testing. To that effect, the CLIC research team organizes international symposia and conferences and it disseminates its research findings through publications in professional journals and world-recognized publishers.

2020 CLIC Conference

The Center for Languages and Intercultural Communication invites you to the 2020 CLIC Conference - Diversity across settings of language use & learning: Identity, culture, and gender.

The 5th Annual CLIC Conference focuses on the description, analysis, and development of a multidimensional definition of language and language acquisition shaped by the diversity of social settings in which language is used. We further focus on the various aspects of diversity prompted by bilingual, multilingual and translingual interactions happening in a variety of environments such as classroom and study abroad educational settings, workplace and office communication, personal interactions and internet-based communication through social media and related technologies.
