Call for Papers:

This two-day seminar will focus on the theme 'Language Teaching and Language Learning', taking a broad view of the diverse contexts in which intercultural communication is developed through the medium of language.

In seeking to promote inter-disciplinary dialogue, the Committee would like to invite abstracts from researchers and practitioners developing empirical work in relevant areas. Particularly encouraged are submissions that examine the implementation of teaching methodologies contributing to the development of Intercultural Communication.

The seminar will be intentionally small in order to allow for dialogue and discussion as a means of bridging theory and practice, contributing to the application of established theory to real contexts of language teaching and language learning.

Abstracts of no more than 200 words should be submitted by 7 March 2014, to baaledinburghoutlook.com.
