The Confucius Institute at the University of Iowa will host a symposium on April 22 from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. at the University Capitol Centre.

This event will serve as a platform for researchers on Chinese applied linguistics around the world to generate ideas, cross disciplinary boundaries, and disseminate research about issues and concerns in the learning and teaching of Chinese as a non-primary language (including heritage language learning) across different acquisition stages in different settings. Topics will include Chinese as a second language processes and development, data-driven pedagogy and discourse analysis and grammar.

Speakers include Professor Agnes Weiyun He (Stony Brook University, New York) and Professor Zhuo Jing-Schmidt (University of Oregon Eugene).

This event is $40 for students and $80 for non-students. Information on registration is available here.
