Ninth Biennial University of Seville Conference on Applied Linguistics
The Research Group The English Language in University Settings of the
College of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics at the University of
Seville, is pleased to announce the Ninth ELIA Conference, to be held in
Seville, Spain, on March 15-16, 2005. The main theme of the conference will
be Motivations, Attitudes & Anxieties in Foreign/Second Language
Acquisition, Teaching, and Use.
Renowned national and international scholars in the broad domain of applied
linguistics have taken part in the eight previous ELIA conferences and have
made a significant contribution to ELIA's success. The keynote speakers
for this year's conference include Dr. Zoltán Dörnyei (University of
Nottingham, UK), Dr. Tim Murphy (Dokkyo University, Japan) and Dr. Jane
Arnold (University of Seville, Spain).
In accordance with the main theme of this year's conference, proposals
related to any dimension of L2 motivations, attitudes and anxieties will be
given preference. Proposals based on other applied linguistics topics
central to ELIA, that is, the teaching, learning/acquisition and discursive
uses of English, either independently or in contact with some other
language, will also be considered. Proposals related to the above
mentioned theme and/or fields that deal with Spanish as a target language
are also welcome.
