Meeting Description: The Linguistics Department at the University of Zadar organizes a scientific workshop entitled 4th Zadar Linguistic Forum: Research Methods in Applied Linguistics, which will be held on June 9-10, 2017. The workshop is aimed at doctoral students of linguistics and related disciplines (Croatian and Slavic Studies, English Studies, German Studies, Italian Studies, etc.) as well as other doctoral researchers who investigate different aspects of language. Graduate students are also encouraged to apply for poster presentations only.

During the workshop, participants will have the opportunity to attend plenary lectures on applied linguistic research methods as well as participate in workshops on ethics of research and quality literature searching for linguists. Participants will have the opportunity to present the topics of their dissertations or of other research projects and discuss methodological issues they came across with experienced researchers. Contributions based on research methods such as surveys, experiments, case studies, ethnographic research, action research, and other approaches, are welcome.

Special emphasis will be placed on the methodology of research in the domain of applied linguistics (i.e. research of bilingualism and multilingualism, first, second and third language acquisition, language pedagogy, language planning and policy, discourse analysis) areas particularly interesting to many doctoral students.
