Call for Papers

Mass-media and Multimedia Texts (M&MT) play a growing role in the life of contemporary society, influencing and in many respects determining the content and the form of information space in various parts of the world. Mass-media and multimedia texts present a great variety of information flow, reflecting both the life of our planet, the surrounding world, the manifestations of elements that are independent of human activity, as well as active processes which shape the world-view of individual persons, of some social strata, of entire nations, of groups of nations or countries in specific periods of their existence, largely defining the events and their progress, of which we are eyewitnesses. However, in the practice of learning/teaching foreign languages the interest in M&MT goes beyond their value as sources of information for political, socio-economic and cultural developments, and it encompasses the opportunity they provide to explore, and get acquainted with, the linguistic means of expressing a certain content. Actually, given that M&MT cover an extremely wide range of topics most of which are highly relevant to the concerns of students (e.g., youth issues, ecology, ethical and moral problems, interactions between the genders as well as between different cultures and races), they provide an excellent tool for increasing the motivation of students as they engage in communicative training. In light of the above points, we would like to invite to the Sixth Symposium on European Languages in East Asia contributions that address the following important points facing all of us as educators and researchers:

  • Identification of M&MT from the point of view of their content, and their classification in a way that would facilitate their employment in classroom
  • Typology of M&MT from the point of view of their grammatical and structural characteristics
  • Exploration of the ways M&MT contribute to the buildup of particular national/social/racial world-views, including the reactions and possible misunderstandings of “outsiders” classroom
  • Methodology of introducing M&MT in the foreign language classroom
  • Practical experience of the employment of M&MT in the foreign language
  • Intertextual interaction of M&MT with other texts, including other M&MT
