This colloquium aims to explore the inter-relations between teaching foreign languages and cultural dialogue. Cultural dialogue is inevitably anchored in its own historicity, and changes with historical markers. Thus when teaching foreign  languages, we are automatically faced with the question:  how does dialogue mediate the reality of a given culture and its development  through socio-economic context, history, sciences, in short all formalised systems which make up received ideas - or the doxa of any given period ?

Cultural dialogue is taken in its broadest form, historical, fictional, iconic or linguistic and papers may choose to focus on any of these several

Papers may be in English or French.

Participants will be given information concerning visas and other administrative details on reception of abstract.
