Examples from the Past as Reflections on the Past and Future
University of Illinois at Chicago, Daley Library Conference Room 1- 470, 801 S. Morgan Street. The analysis of instructional material in use during the time period between the First and the Second World War stimulates reflections on the role, and use, of teaching foreign languages and cultures as a soft power resource. What are the possible implications for our present times and pedagogical practices? This workshop was aimed at generating discussion among participants about the ethics and ontology of FL teaching and learning. Roberto Dolci is Associate Professor of Linguistics at the Università per Stranieri di Perugia and Visiting Scholar at the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute, CUNY, New York.
