4TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INNOVATIVE PRACTICES AND RESEARCH:
On the path to diversity and social justice
October 19th and 20th – 2023. Centro de convenciones- Universidad de Córdoba Montería. Colombia
The 2023 International Conference is a space for academic dialogue among teachers, researchers, pre-service teachers, and students of foreign languages in local, national, and international contexts. This year’s conference aims at recognizing innovative practices and research on the teaching of English or any other foreign language that explores local and global issues (i.e., climate crisis, biodiversity, and racism) and portray diverse life histories, perspectives, identities, and explicitly allow for the identification of power relations which usually obscure the voices of the oppressed. Likewise, the conference addresses a critical perspective of language teaching that not only recognizes oppression and differences but promotes action and transformation.
