ONLINE ZOOM WEBINAR (In Italian)
JOIN US – Guest speakers prof.sse Elisabetta Bonvino andElisa De Roberto from Rome, Italy
“Che cosa ci insegna l’italiano dei giovani? Sulle varietà giovanili nella didattica delle lingue e dell’italiano”
Professors Bonvino and De Roberto will discuss how much “space” the language used by the youth should be given in the world language classroom. In particular they will concentrate on the teaching of Italian and illustrate how the language of the youth shares a complex network of relationships with the colloquial language, dialects, and slang, but also with the language of mass-media.
In their presentation, the two scholars will illustrate how the Italian spoken by the youth is not only a language variant the young people use to interact among themselves, but it is also an important sociolinguistic phenomenon in contemporary Italian.
Organized under the High Patronage of the President of the Italian Republic by the Dante Alighieri Society of Michigan and the Wayne State University, Italian Area – Classical and Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures
With the support of the Italian American Club of Livonia Charitable Foundation.
