CFP: deadline Dec 4 -- Conference on Language, Learning, & Culture -- Making Research Matter


Making Research Matter:

Motivated Inquiry for Actionable Insights



Proposal Submission Deadline: December 4, 2017

Conference Dates: April 6-7, 2018

Location: Virginia International University, 4401 Village Drive, Fairfax, VA, 22030 USA

Call for Proposals and Guidelines: http://conference.viu.edu/cllc/content/call-for-proposals

Registration: http://conference.viu.edu/cllc/content/registration



In focusing on “Making Research Matter,” CLLC 2018 seeks to stimulate conversations on how research and its uses in society might be transformed if more of us were to make a point of asking “for what, for whom, and by whom?”* at the outset of every research endeavor.


Our aim is to involve a diverse group of practitioners, researchers, policy-makers, community members, and other stakeholders in a multidirectional sharing of interests, values, and expertise. We especially welcome proposals involving projects in which the investigators considered the users and uses of their research from the very beginning and made decisions accordingly—from action-research projects conducted by individual teachers in their classrooms to larger-scale funded endeavors where collaborative teams had an eye toward wider public engagement and policy impacts, and everything in between.


Proposals for paper and poster presentations, workshops, colloquia, and panel discussions are invited until December 4, 2017.


We hope to see you for our 5th annual CLLC!
