CYCLE OF CONFERENCES
MANUEL CÉLIO CONCEIÇÃO PARTICIPATES IN CYCLE OF CONFERENCES ABOUT CULTURAL DIVERSITY
Today, May 3, 2022, at 6 pm, CIAC researcher Manuel Célio Conceição will be present at the conference cycle Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development. This event is promoted by the Institute of Advanced Studies of the Academy of Sciences of Lisbon and will be held on the Zoom platform and broadcast live on the Academy’s Youtube channel.
“Language policies and sustainable management of diversities” is the title of the conference that will be given by Manuel Célio Conceição. The aim is to discuss the definition of language; analyze its relationship with the individual and the community (in the affirmation of identity, the promotion of cultural heritage and the dissemination of knowledge and know-how); and relate language issues to justice, language rights, quality of life, education and science.
Because we live in unequivocally multicultural and multilingual spaces, it is necessary to design language policies in line with the emerging needs of speakers and the communities in which they interact. The emergence and acceptance of linguistic sensitivity (starting in the classroom) seems to be a chance to manage diversities peacefully and to promote their sustainability.
This cycle aims to contribute to the fostering of science and culture, enabling intergenerational understanding and lifelong learning.
