The Power of Language Conference

After a year-long pause, the Fries Center for Global Studies is excited to invite you, your students, and peers to participate in the 4th Annual Power of Language Conference to be held remotely on Saturday, April 10, 2021. The organizing committee is seeking paper and performance submissions on language learning and multilingual living.

The Power of Language Conference seeks to bring awareness to the many benefits and complexities of language learning and to promote the study of languages. We invite Wesleyan students, faculty, alumni, community members, and peers from neighboring institutions to join us in reflecting on all aspects of multilingualism in our communities and beyond.

For conference registration, themes and submission, please visit https://www.wesleyan.edu/cgs/eventsprograms/langconference/Power%20of%20Language%202021.html.

Application deadline is Monday, February 22, 2021.
Notifications of acceptance will be sent by Friday, March 5, 2021.

We look forward to reading your submissions! Please share widely.

Best wishes,
The 2021 Power of Language Organizing Committee

Language Learning at Wesleyan

Wesleyan University places high value on multilingual proficiency and strongly encourages you to study other languages and live abroad. Check out these recent Wes students’ reflections on what their language study has meant to them.

There are 15 languages taught at Wesleyan. Keep going in a language you already have studied, or start a new one! In order to be placed at the right level for a language you have studied already (other than English), you can use your AP or IB score or take a Wesleyan online Placement Test, which is available through your WesPortal. If you are considering learning or maintaining a language not taught at Wesleyan, there are several independent study options for you, available through the Fries Center for Global Studies.

Make study abroad a keystone experience while at Wesleyan—plan ahead by checking out the many choices of programs all over the world, some of them Wesleyan-run, and the language prerequisites for programs in countries where English is not the first language.

Make your Wesleyan years a global experience by gaining linguistic and intercultural competence!
