Teaching English through the Arts--SAMLA, 11/13-11/15/15

If "a picture is worth a thousand words," it is worth considering the amount of language acquisition that could be achieved through the use of pictures, paintings, and photography. To non-native or ESOL speakers, the value and effects of this imagery and, by extension, the use of role playing, and portraying scenarios could be an incredible boon in English language learning. For example, explaining the difference between the words "house" and "home" can be more easily expressed and internalized by depictions and creations of various images.

[UPDATE] The Poetics of Knowledge (5-7 Nov 2015, Berne, Switzerland)

Tuesday, March 3, 2015 - 4:30am
Wolfgang Funk (Leibniz University Hanover) and Irmtraud Huber (University of Berne)

One very common narrative about Victorian Britain is that it was an age of ground-breaking scientific discoveries: Charles Lyell significantly extended the age of our planet; Charles Darwin forced a rethinking of the origins and development of life; Michael Faraday and James Maxwell Clark paved the way for modern physics; Non-Euclidean Geometry changed the way mathematicians measured and formalized the world; Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace laid the foundation for computing. The list could be expanded at leisure, as scientists made and remade the various fields in which humans have tried to make sense of the natural world.
