Meeting Description:

The 19th Conference of the International Association for World Englishes (IAWE) will be held November 16-18, 2013, at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona, USA.

The theme of the conference is ‘World Englishes in the Multilingual World.’ From the beginning of World Englishes studies, multilingualism has always been an important part of the field, whether in focusing on the influences of other languages on the forms and functions of English, in examining the multilingual creativity in literary work in Englishes, or in exploring issues concerning the teaching of English to speakers of other languages. This year’s theme encourages us not only to continue research and engage in discussion on English in a multilingual community, but also to critically examine the relationship between English and other languages while contextualizing our work in today’s complex global network of languages.

For more information about IAWE 2013, please visit http://iawe.asu.edu or email the organizing committee at iaweasu.edu.

Call for Papers:

The IAWE 2013 Organizing Committee seeks proposals for individual presentations (20 minute plus 10-min discussion) and colloquia (2 hours and 10 minutes) that address various topics within the field of World Englishes studies. Any topic related to theory, methodology, or pedagogy is welcome; we especially encourage proposals that address the conference theme: ‘World Englishes in the Multilingual World.’

To submit your proposal, please use the online proposal submission form available on our website (http://iawe.asu.edu/proposal.html). Proposals for individual papers should be 300 words maximum (including references). Colloquium proposals should include a 300-word overview of the entire colloquium and a 300-word proposal for each individual presentation within the colloquium. Please note that we cannot accept proposals that do not adhere to the word limit.

You may submit multiple proposals but may appear on the program as a presenter only once (a person who organizes a colloquium may also present). If multiple proposals get accepted, you will be asked to select one and withdraw others.

The deadline for submission of proposals is April 15, 2013. Proposals will be anonymously peer reviewed by a panel of international scholars in the field. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by July 2013.
