Second call for papers – 14th Annual Conference of the BAAL Language Learning and Teaching SIG

CLLEAR
University of Southampton

BAAL

“Language teaching and learning in unstable times, and in changing political landscapes” – the 14th Annual Conference of the BAAL Language Learning and Teaching Special Interest Group

12 & 13 July 2018

Hosted by the Centre for Language Learning, Education and Acquisition Research (CLLEAR), Department of Modern Languages and Linguistics (MLL), University of Southampton, Southampton, UK

Proposal deadline is Friday 16th March 2018

CONFERENCE THEME: “Language teaching and learning in unstable times, and in changing political landscapes”

The theme of the LLT SIG conference at Southampton in 2018 will enable participants to discuss the challenges offered to traditional language education policy and practice by increasing interconnected globalization and changing conceptions of identity, accompanied by a rise in global migratory flows, resurgent nationalism and social inequality. These challenges have both foreseen and unforeseen consequences for the development and implementation of language education policy, and for teaching, learning and assessment practices. We invite papers and posters which make a contribution to understanding the issues which arise in the pre-school, school, and university language curriculum, in community-based and online learning and teaching contexts, and in the evaluation and management processes which shape language education experiences.

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

Abstracts are invited on any aspect of language teaching and learning, based on research in Applied Linguistics or related perspectives on language education. Abstracts which address the conference theme, and which relate to lesser taught languages, such as Chinese, will be particularly welcome.
Proposals are invited for paper presentations of 20 minutes + 5 minutes for questions. Poster proposals are also welcome. A title + abstract of maximum 250 words should be submitted. Abstracts should report original research and profile the context, objectives, method(s), and results of your study.
All proposals should be submitted by 16 March 2018 here.
