Meeting Description:

This conference on English in professional settings will take place at the university of Lyon (France).

English has become one of the working languages in France across many professional settings. This conference seeks to provide insights into this phenomenon from angles such as discourse analysis, the ethnography of communication, corpus analysis, or ICT studies. The conference will cover theoretical as well as practical or pedagogical issues stemming from this growing field study. Some examples of issues might be (and are not limited to) the notion of competence and/or proficiency, the relationships between specialized discourse and professional discourse, needs analysis, and course design in English for professional/occupational purposes.

Call for Papers:

All kinds of approaches will be considered - discourse analysis, corpus linguistics, business communication, ethnographic studies, and so on.
