We are so excited to announce that the 16th Annual LESLLA Symposium will be held in Malmö, Sweden from August 5-7th, 2020. Our host will be Hyllie Park Folkhögskola together with the municipal adult education (Komvux) in Malmö. Here is a brief announcement/introduction video from organizers Elisabet Mörnerud and Abdulkhadir Mohamed.

Institutes of higher education, schools, literacy centers, language programs and many other organizations are welcome to submit a proposal to host a LESLLA symposium. Everything you want to know about hosting a LESLLA symposia is available here on our website. The deadline to submit a proposal to host the 2021 symposium is March 1st, 2020. Simply build a small conference team and work out a few logistics, then submit this form to express your interest to host.

Keep in mind that the Annual LESLLA Symposia alternate between non-English dominant and English dominant countries/settings. In past years, our “even years” LESLLA gatherings have been in Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Italy, Belgium, and Finland. Thus far, during our “odd years” we have gathered in the U.S., Canada and England. For 2021, we will plan for an English dominant context.
