The first conference is The 8th National Symposium on Spanish as a Heritage Language, with a focus on the linguistic reality of Spanish heritage speakers, as well as the pedagogical needs of these speakers in a classroom setting. The conference, organized by the Institute for Language Education in Transcultural Context, The Graduate Center, CUNY, takes place May 13 to May 16. Although the deadline for submissions has passed, since the conference will be held virtually, anyone interested in Spanish as a heritage language should check it out.
Second, we are happy to share information with you on the Thirteenth Heritage Language Research Institute, which focuses on language similarities / differences in bilingual situations. The conference, organized by the University of North Carolina, takes place June 7 to June 10. Once again, as a virtual conference, it is accessible to all who are interested.
