Conversation Series -The Three C's: Citizenship (Global), Cultural Identity, and Connection

Citizen Scholars (CS), in collaboration with GenCen, is hosting a conversation series for CS students that we’ve decided to make available to all students. Conversations will be facilitated by current MSU doctoral students from the English, WRAC, and Psychology depts on the topics of global citizenship, cultural identity, and connection. Our discussions provide space for students to have open dialogue, to share their experiences, and to be challenged in their perspectives and/or ideals with the hope of provoking some form of action.

Language Acquisition Planning: Social Actors Across Scales @ Online Event

Department of Linguistics and Germanic, Slavic, Asian, and African Languages:
LANGUAGE ACQUISITION PLANNING: SOCIAL ACTORS ACROSS SCALES
FRIDAY, MARCH 5
3:00 PM

Please RSVP at
https://forms.gle/aTr4BDHhRGUWDjxN8 for Zoom link

In this talk, I revisit language acquisition planning from a scalar perspective (e.g., De Costa & Canagarajah, 2016; Hogan-Brun & Hogan, 2013; Hult, 2016; Larsen-Freeman, 2018), reflecting on how all educational stakeholders are involved with language planning decisions. In his book Language Planning and Social Change, Cooper (1989) added language acquisition planning as a fundamental type of planning alongside corpus and status planning. The successful management of language form (corpus) and language function (status), he offered, requires careful planning about language learning in order to develop capacities for individual language use in social context.
Drawing on a body of research about what can be characterized as situated language policy and planning (Hult, 2014, 2017; Siiner, Hult & Kupisch, 2018), I explore how language acquisition planning goes beyond curricula to encompass the full range of decision-making by educational stakeholders including teachers and students (e.g., Hult, 2018; Menken & García, 2010), parents and families (e.g., Smith-Christmas, 2016), and other community members (e.g., McCarty, 2011). I use examples from a variety of studies to demonstrate how language acquisition planning is relevant for these different stakeholders. I conclude with suggestions for raising awareness about language acquisition planning in the training of teachers and administrators and in outreach to parents and communities.

Join us on March 10 at 4pm EST to talk about our present situation and hear guidance on how to navigate the current employment landscape. Students of all majors and degree levels are welcome.

Nikita Gale (b. 1983, Anchorage, Alaska; lives and works in Los Angeles) is an artist living and working in Los Angeles, California and holds a BA in Anthropology with an emphasis in Archaeological Studies from Yale University and earned an MFA in New Genres at UCLA. Gale’s practice is often structured by long-term obsessions with specific objects and the ways these objects gesture towards particular social and political histories. Gale uses ubiquitous consumer technologies as frameworks to consider how individuals potentially reproduce their relationships to objects within their relationships to psychic space and political, social, and economic systems. For Gale, the term “reproduction” is as much a mechanical, technical process as it is a process rooted in sex, biology, and the organic.

On a more physical register, Gale’s work points to the ways that many technologies can be understood as instruments that extend or amplify the body through a relationship to touch. Reproduction connects humans to a desire for extension and amplification both biologically and through industrial processes. By engaging with materials that have properties that are simultaneously acoustic and protective, Gale’s recent work considers the role of the audience as a social arena and examines the ways in which silence and noise function as political positions and conditions.

Nikita’s work has recently been exhibited at MoMA PS1 (New York); LACE (Los Angeles); Commonwealth and Council (Los Angeles); Matthew Marks Gallery (Los Angeles); The Studio Museum in Harlem (New York); Rodeo Gallery (London); Ceysson & Benetiere (Paris); and in “Made in L.A. 2018” at the Hammer Museum (Los Angeles). Gale’s work has appeared in numerous publications including The New York Times, Artforum, Art in America, Art21, AQNB, Frieze, Vogue, and Flash Art. Nikita currently serves on the Board of Directors for GREX, the west coast affiliate of the AK Rice Institute for the Study of Social Systems.
