Research Meets Practice & Practice Meets Research.

We encourage submissions from graduate students and professionals whose research and practice fall broadly under the umbrella of applied linguistics and TESL/TEFL. The mission of the conference binds us to prioritize proposals from graduate students and professionals not holding a doctoral degree. If you are interested in submitting but unsure about eligibility, do email us at talgsecu.edu. We will gladly assist you. We welcome cross-disciplinary proposals with relevance to language use, learning and/or teaching from a variety of fields, including, for example, English studies, education, discourse studies, foreign languages, anthropology, communications, sociolinguistics, psychology, and sociology. Proposals reporting on action research (inside and outside the classroom), works in progress, submissions based on successful term projects, pilot research, as well as proposals for discussion sessions and workshops are welcome. Presentations requiring computer facilities can be accommodated. Multiple proposals will be considered. Submit and register via the conference website. The deadline for proposal submission is Monday, November 30, 2009.
