Language has the power, not only to reflect who we are, but also to make us who we are or allow us to make ourselves" (Llamas & Watt, 2009). This year, the Bilingualism SIG Forum aims to explore issues, problems, and "puzzles” that surround the theme of multilingualism/multiculturalism and its relation to identity development and dilemmas. The panelists will share their lived experiences as well as engage with the audience during a Q&A session. The forum will be of particular interest to potential attendees who are considering how language(s) may affect individuals' identity development.
