ALTA is soliciting current articles relating to the teaching
of all African languages and membership news for inclusion in its Spring 2017 newsletter edition.
This is your chance to share your contributions and
engagement in the promotion of the learning and teaching of African languages
with your colleagues in ALTA and the rest of the world. We are looking for articles on all African
languages taught as foreign languages. We may, if available accept articles
that profile a given institution and its African languages program.
Articles should be:
Related to students, academic programs such as study abroad initiatives, cultural
excursions, extracurricular events, scholarly conferences, service learning, institutional
collaborations in the area of African languages both local and international and
any other general current happenings.
200-300 words in a word document and may include a small graphic or event
photo (Submit article and graphic as
separate attachments-graphic must be in a pdf, doc, docx, jpeg, and png format, 1 MB max).
All articles are gratefully received, but owing to space and
editorial consideration, not all will be published in the newsletter.
ALTA would also like the opportunity to highlight member
news on a personal level as appropriate. Some example of member news:
and re-designation of titles e.g., lectureship/tenure track
acquired designations relating to the field of African language offerings
achievement awards, etc.
