The conference, hosted by the Faculty of Humanities, University of Huelva, Spain, responds to a widely recognized need for an updated knowledge base and innovative methodological tools in the study of temporal and modal representations in a second language (L2). It aims to complement previous research perspectives by providing a dynamic exploration of recent, up-to-date issues in contemporary research. We expect that the outcome of this conference will allow us to improve our TAML2 vision of linguistic theory, second language learning, second language acquisition (SLA), language teaching and the study of heritage languages. Both theoretical and pedagogical implications of the research on acquisition and learning of TAM will be discussed. This conference will also allow us to strengthen networks of scholars working on SLA from different perspectives.


All presenters are invited to submit their work for the Selected Proceedings of the Conference, which will be published as a special issue by an international journal.
