Special Issue of the Asian Journal of Applied Linguistics
Theme: English as a Lingua Franca in Institutions of Higher Education in Asia
We interpret lingua franca as applying not only to communication within an institution but also between institutions and in a broader sense to the communication needed by individuals or groups within the institution to form or participate in global academic, professional, and social partnerships.
Sub-topics include but are not restricted to:
- the teaching, learning or use of English to facilitate academic communication within or between institutions or with the wider academic community
- the use of English for intercultural exchanges
- the use of English for administrative purposes within the institution
- the use of English to promote inclusivity
- the status of English within higher education in Asia
- the attitudes of students/teachers/administrators to the use of English
- contextual influences on the use of English within or between institutions
- the relationship between the use of English and internationalisation
We are equally interested in papers which discuss contexts in which English as a lingua franca is enabled, impeded or possibly both.
