学会 Academic Conference
Oana Cusen from the Language Center gave a presentation on intercultural dialogue through Collaborative Online Learning (COIL) at the 7th International Conference on Theoretical and Applied Linguistics: Structure, Use, and Meaning (SUM), which was held from September 15th, 2022 to September 17th, 2022 in Brasov, Romania. SUM 2022 was focused on issues dealing with language and dialogue, from the point of view of syntax, semantics, pragmatics, rhetoric, dialogue studies, discourse analysis, sociolinguistics, or intercultural and foreign/second language instruction. Around 100 teachers and researchers from over 10 countries, such as Poland, Italy, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia gathered to give presentations and hold discussions. The conference had a lively atmosphere, and each presentation generated interesting debates on a wide variety of issues, such as expressing humor in social media exchanges, the linguistic differences between right-wing and left-wing political discourse, and the gamification of second language acquisition.
