LSPHE 2019 programme

We are delighted to welcome as our main keynote speaker Dr. Mary Risner, Associate Director of Outreach and Business Programs at the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Florida, USA.

LSPHE 2019 will offer a range of papers presented by delegates from 11 different countries. In its new two-day format, we hope that this event will provide a unique opportunity for LSP practitioners from Europe and beyond to meet, exchange ideas and discuss their practice. To this effect, we are offering a series of “curriculum clinic” workshops on topics including Arts and Humanities, Business, Healthcare and STEM, inviting delegates from all branches of LSP to share and discuss sample tasks and curricula.
