FIT Working Group
The Found in Translation (FIT) Working Group has been founded with support from the Townsend Center for the Humanities in order to provide a space at UC Berkeley for cross-linguistic and inter-disciplinary community building among educational researchers, humanities scholars, and language instructors. Growing out of the regular FIT meetings begun in Spring 2010, the working group invites interested members of the UC Berkeley community to a series of meetings to address topical and academic issues such as: language and identity, language ideologies and the humanities, classroom pedagogy, globalization, and other topics of interest to scholars in applied language studies. Given the crisis facing language education in the United States, the FIT Working Group further seeks to engage a collaborative process to deepen discussions among applied linguistics researchers and language instructors and move language education research and advocacy forward.
