Contemporary Language Motivation Theory: 60 Years Since Gardner and Lambert (1959) (PLL3)

Authors:

Abstract

This symposium celebrates the legacy and continuing influence of Robert C. Gardner, the father of the L2 motivation field, at the 60th anniversary of the seminal paper by Gardner and Lambert (1959). Gardner's contributions go beyond the one-dimensional integrative-instrumental dichotomy. A group of distinguished scholars were invited to contribute to this symposium, each addressing a dimension of Gardner's contributions that links directly to contemporary developments in SLA theory and research. The topics come from diverse disciplinary perspectives, instantiating the extensive influence of Gardner's work. The presentations feature issues spanning macro-level processes of intergroup relations and social harmony to micro-level processes of intra-individual development and emotional reactions. Few SLA theorists have had such far-reaching influence. Each presentation takes Gardner's work in a new direction. Noels describes the richness of the socio-educational model and links it to self-determination theory. Oxford discusses the oft-neglected but pervasive issue of time perspectives, showing that Gardner's writings contribute to the discussion of time. Ushioda reflects on the evolution of her methodological thinking and how it was influenced by Gardner's approach. Finally, MacIntyre, Dewaele, and Gregersen expand Gardner's work on emotions. This inspiring collection of papers will be a unique experience for the audience, taking the field toward exciting new directions, even as we celebrate the first 60 years of Gardner's contributions. Summary A group of distinguished scholars discuss the contributions of Robert C. Gardner at the 60th anniversary of the seminal paper by Gardner and Lambert (1959) that founded the L2 motivation field. Each scholar deals with a dimension of Gardner's contributions, linking it to contemporary theory and empirical evidence.
