We are delighted to announce that this year’s WESLINE conference will take place at the Institut français in London on Wednesday 4 September 2019, kindly hosted by Marion Loire, the Head Librarian. The overarching themes of the conference are the state of modern languages teaching and learning in the UK and predictions for the future, and the ways in which libraries and library language groups can be innovative in supporting language learning, teaching and research in modern languages.
The full conference programme is yet to be finalised, but will include panels on:
The future of languages A panel on modern languages in schools and universities.
What can libraries do? A round table discussion on the role of libraries in fostering the learning of modern languages and supporting research.
The future of languages librarianship A workshop/open discussion on the proposals for a refreshed library group provisionally named the Modern Languages and Cultures Library Group.
More detail and information on how to book to follow. For now, please hold the date!
