NNMF 6 - Boundary Students in Nordic L1 subjects

NNMF 6: Boundary Students in Nordic L1 subjects

Students’ opportunities for getting access to and engage in Nordic L1 subjects


Conference theme

In Nordic L1 subjects as well as internationally, we observe students that could be described as boundary students.
Boundary students may have difficulties getting access to and engaging in L1 subjects, or for various reasons they don’t identify with the subject. In the educational discourse they may be represented as students with reading difficulties, students who read little, struggling writers, students whose first language is not the L1 language, digital super users who, while active expressing themselves in informal learning arenas, lack interest in the L1 subject. These students – and others – could be said to act on the boundary of the subject or even outside it. They don’t have, or they refrain, from developing, a voice in the subject. They challenge the boundaries and the identity of the L1 subject.
The focus of the conference is how to research issues of boundary students, what we know about them, how their access to and engagement in future national and transnational L1 subjecs can be supported, and what this might imply for the identity and boundaries of the subject.
