Meeting Description: COREL (Conference for Researchers of English Language) is an annual research scholars’ conference organised by the Research Scholars’ Forum, Centre for English Language Studies, University of Hyderabad. It is an academic endeavour to bring together research scholars across the nation working in the field of English Language and allied disciplines. The theme of COREL-2017 is “English Language Studies in contemporary Indian context: Issues and Challenges”.

The English language has played a crucial role in shaping the Indian psyche since the early 19th century and impacted the intellectual, social, economic and cultural domains of the nation. It continues to impact Indian society even today, defining concepts like development, modernity and literacy. Further, it has serious consequences for employability, media, culture, and the academia. A Study of the ways in which English has impacted our thinking and the conceptual and pedagogic manifestations it has had in varied fields have been some of the concerns of recent research in the field of English Language studies (ELS) in India.

This conference would provide a platform to discuss and deliberate some of these issues. Specifically, it generates thinking and research on language policy and planning, curriculum development, multilingual education, Indian English, and use of English in India. The focus will be on the ontological, epistemological, axiological and methodological issues and challenges.

The ideas generated through critical discussion and deliberation in the conference will help explore future research possibilities in the field of English Language studies. This first Research Scholars Conference from the Centre for English Language Studies (CELS) intends to explore the scope of ELS as a discipline in India.
