What Might Translingual Education Look Like?
Pennycook, Alastair
Babel, v47 n1 p5-13 2012
The first meeting to discuss the formation of what was to become the Australian Federation of Modern Language Teachers Associations (AFMLTA) was held on 22 August 1961. The AFMLTA then officially commenced on 1 January 1962, so in fact the AFMLTA is not too distant from its 50th anniversary. A particular feature of the AFMLTA is the Keith Horwood Memorial Lecture. Keith Horwood was the foundation secretary of the AFMLTA, and after Keith's death in 1974 a family bequest in his name became available, to acknowledge an Australian who is a languages educator and doing something of particular interest. The current enactment of this bequest is through the Horwood lecture at AFMLTA conferences. It has been part of the program in this format since 2001. In this 2012 article Sherryl Saunders, President of AFMLTA introduces Alastair Pennycock as the Keith Horwood Memorial lecturer. The theme of Pennycock's lecture is "What Might Trans-Lingual Education Look Like?".
