Call Deadline: 31-Jul-2012

Meeting Description:

This conference is the opportunity for teachers, researchers, performers and practitioners to meet and share their perspectives on how literary texts can best be integrated into English Language Teaching (ELT). For the past 20-30 years the focus in English Language Teaching (ELT) has been on so-called 'practical English' despite the fact that there has been no critical discussion or concrete rationale for the abandonment of literary texts/sources in English language programs - particularly in conjunction with the development of productive skills (speaking and writing) but also with respect to so-called receptive skills (reading and listening). Furthermore, researchers with backgrounds in literature and linguistics had never before collaborated to seriously consider how literary texts may best be utilized in ELT.

Call for Papers:

Teachers, researchers, performers and anyone interested in the use of literary texts in English Language Teaching are welcome to submit a 150 word proposal to present a paper, workshop, panel, poster, or performance at the conference.

Deadline for proposals: July 31, 2012.
