The theme of the conference is “In Search of the ‘Zen’ of Second Language Acquisition: Examining the Learner at the Crossroads of Language, Culture and Identity.” With our theme, we seek to gain clarity around the experiences of SLA with a focus on various sociocultural facets of language learners.
