Promoting and Supporting the Teaching and Study of World Languages, Literatures and Cultures in the Rhode Island area.

Upcoming events

We at RIFLA promote language. We understand that language has power and should be used to unify and not to attack or marginalize. We also believe that the racial and ethnic diversity of the United States is a force that does not weaken but instead enriches us as a country. We condemn the use of hateful language and violence against any person or community based on race or ethnicity and stand in solidarity with all victims of hate crimes and bigotry. 

Many Thanks to our 2021 Virtual Conference Sponsors!!

Call for RIFLA Fall Conference 2021 Presenter Proposals and Sponsors

RIFLA 2021 Fall Conference: 

Interculturality Is Our Reality

Saturday October 2nd, 2021

Virtual Conference

Keynote Presenter:  Dr. Manuela Wagner

Manuela Wagner holds a Ph.D. in English Studies with a specialization in linguistics from Graz University, Austria. Her research focuses on the integration of Intercultural Competence and Intercultural Citizenship (Byram, 1997, 2008) in (language) education and across the curriculum from elementary school through post-secondary education. She is particularly interested in the interplay of theory and practice and has been part of and helped create communities of practice to implement theories of Intercultural Competence and Citizenship as well as related theoretical frameworks (theories of criticality, intercultural communication, social justice, intellectual humility) in practice. The resulting book projects include the co-edited volumes Teaching Intercultural Competence Across the Age Range: From Theory to Practice (2018) and Education for Intercultural Citizenship: Principles in Practice (2017), and the co-authored book Teaching Intercultural Citizenship Across the Curriculum: The Role of Language Education (2019). She also investigates the role of educators as advocates for all (language) learner
