Special theme: Linguistic and Intercultural Education in the Process of Europeanisation of Higher Education Main goals of the workshop: setting up the European Network for Intercultural Education Activities (ENIEDA) and establishing the ways of capitalizing on bilingualism and multilingualism in shaping a European identity versus preserving national, regional and ethnic identities.

The 2nd International Conference on Linguistic and Intercultural Education (CLIE2)

Date: 10-12 June 2010
Venue: Hotel Plaža, Herceg Novi, Montenegro
Host institution: Institute of Foreign Languages, University of Montenegro

Special theme: Linguistic and cultural diversity within European learning communities: cross-cultural and trans-national perspectives
CLIE2, hosted by the Institute of Foreign Languages of the University of Montenegro, remained open to linguistic and cross-cultural education-related topics broadly defined, looking more closely into the current dynamics in Europe between old and new trends, local and global tendencies, progressive and conservative views, stabilisation and destabilisation patterns, national and European identities. Even though our aim was to focus primarily on European learning communities and their culture specific identities, we welcomed participants representing other geographical and geo-political regions and their contributions as well.

International Conference Negotiating and Constructing European Identities across Languages and Cultures

Date: 29 September-1 October 2011
Venue: Hotel Srbija, Vršac, Serbia
Host institution: Teacher Training College, Vršac, Serbia 

Special theme: Constructing a European identity vs. preserving local/regional/national identities and their cultural idiosyncrasies
The event was hosted and convened by the Teacher Training College Vršac, and its main ambition was to strengthen the links between the north and the south, as well as the east and the west of Europe in order to identify new collaborative and networking opportunities, both of which would inform future directions of research and development. Among the plenary speakers was Ms Maguelonne Déjeant-Pons, Head of the Cultural Heritage, Landscape and Spatial Planning Division of the Council of Europe.
