Subject: New Association: IAWE


 At a recent meeting to discuss linguistic, literary and
pedagogical aspects of World Englishes held in Honolulu, Hawaii,
a new international scholarly association was launched. The
organization is named International Association for World
Englishes (IAWE). The Steering Committee for the Association was
formed during the conference on "Culture and Literature: Issues
of Interpretation and Comprehension" organized by the East-West
Center, Honolulu (May ll-15, 1992). The conference included
international scholars representing both Western and non-Western
countries. The members of the Steering Committee are James E.
Alatis (Georgetown), Kimberly Brown (Portland), Wimal Dissanayake
(East-West Center, Honolulu), Braj B. Kachru (Illinois), Peter
Lowenberg (San Jose State), Cecil L. Nelson (Indiana State), Anne
Pakir (NUS, Singapore), Larry E. Smith (East-West Center,
Honolulu), S. N. Sridhar (SUNY Stony Brook) and Tamara Valentine
(South Carolina, Spartanburg). The main objective of the
Association, said Larry Smith, organizer of the Honolulu
conference, is to "establish international links among those who
are involved with any aspect of World Englishes in research
and/or teaching. The Association will focus on global issues
relating to three major aspects of World Englishes: language,
literature and methodology." IAWE replaces the International
Committee on World Englishes formed in 1987 at Georgetown. The
charter annual membership fee is $10.00. Requests for further
