The 17th Annual Conference of International Association for World Englishes (IAWE) is being hosted by Monash University from November 23-25, 2011.

IAWE is an international scholarly association which aims to establish links among those who are involved with any aspect of World Englishes in research and/or teaching. The association focuses on global issues relating to three major aspects of World Englishes, language, literature, and pedagogy. IAWE is committed to the study of the forms and functions of varieties of Englishes in diverse cultural and sociolinguistic contexts.

Call for Papers:

Please note that we have extended the deadline for abstract submission.

The IAWE 2011 Organizing Committee invites proposals for presentations (20 minutes + 10 minutes for discussion) on any area of research related to World Englishes. Abstracts addressing the conference theme, Englishes in the World and the World in Englishes, are particularly welcome. In addition to the issues in theory, methodology, and pedagogy, papers may address other areas of relevance for World Englishes scholarship. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

Intercultural communication across World Englishes
Models and theoretical dimensions of World Englishes
Cultures across World Englishes
Emergent varieties of English
English as an International Language
World Englishes and education
English as a Lingua Franca
