Meeting Description:

Applying Applied Linguistics
University of South Australia
Adelaide, July 15-17

Linguistic understanding of our world has evolved through continuous
applications in many of the spheres of our society --- from legal
representation to forensics, from speech recognition technology to
genetics, from language teaching and learning to intercultural
communication and interaction in professional practice.

As in any area of study and research, applying the research generated
in applied linguistics, invites inquiry into the interrelationships of
theory, practice, discourse, and ethics.

In reflecting on applying applied linguistics within local, national
and international perspectives, we invite papers that engage inquiry
into:

*interactions in teaching and learning languages and cultures 
*Indigenous languages and cultures (language reclamation) 
*interactions in professional practice [eg. educational, legal, medical, scientific, media, et al.] 
*creating collaborative pathways for interdisciplinary research 
*the discourses of : 
-the critical
-the ethical
-the intercultural
-the interdisciplinary
-the international
-the political
-the professional
-the technological
