04marAll Day0841th Language Testing Research Colloquium (LTRC2019)Language Testing and Social Justice

Event Details

We have chosen the theme of Language Testing and Social Justice as a focus for the 41st annual Language Testing Research Colloquium. It is a particularly relevant theme for a conference to be held in Atlanta, Georgia, home of Dr. Martin Luther King, Junior, and a major center of the Civil Rights movement in the USA. We also want to recognize the 20th anniversary of Elana Shohamy’s landmark 1998 article Critical Language Testing and Beyond, in which she challenged language testers to “actively follow the uses and consequences of language tests, and offer assessment models which are more educational, democratic, and ethical in order to minimize misuses.”
