Meeting Description:

The 49th Annual Meeting of the British Association for Applied Linguistics will be hosted by Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge on 1–3 September 2016.

Conference theme: Taking stock of Applied Linguistics – Where are we now?

At the time of the Annual Meeting of BAAL in 2016 we will be one and a half decades into the new millennium. The new millennium brought many trends and changes in applied linguistics, for example the increasing use of interdisciplinary approaches in the field, interest in corpus-based studies, the use of new media as data sources and as new environments of communication – which in turn developed new ways of communicating and influenced language. At the same time, processes that have started in the old millennium are continuing to develop and influence the field, such as globalisation, migration and its implications on how languages are used. Looking at the past and present, and understanding the developments of the field, will enable us to move confidently into the future, and to continue to make valuable contributions to society.
