JEAP Special Issue: Halliday's influence on EAP Practice.

Michael Halliday died on April 15th 2018 in Sydney, and his passing has met with an outpouring of messages around the world expressing sadness as well as appreciation for the extensive and hugely influential work he has done for linguistics, and for language teaching.
On the BALEAP mailing list, it was suggested that JEAP should commemorate his work in a special issue that examines the influence that his work has had on the practice of EAP. As Christina Healey said, 'we have all benefitted so much from his thinking, even if we didn't always know it.'

Specifically, we would like the focus to be on the teaching, learning and professional practice of EAP.

At last year's BALEAP conference Susie Cowley-Haselden and Laetitia Monbec reported on a survey of BALEAP members where they asked about the theories that guide EAP practice and the extent to which they are visible to practitioners and to students. SFL was top among them (alongside genre theory and corpus linguistics). The special issue of JEAP aims to further explore how Halliday's Systemic Functional Linguistics has influenced EAP practice.

There are three ways that you can contribute:
- Submit a proposal for a Full-length Research Article or a shorter Research to Practice paper for inclusion in the special issue. Please send a 500 word abstract/outline to Sheena Gardner ( by September 15th, 2018. You should make clear in the abstract which aspects of Halliday's work you are focusing on, and what aspects of EAP practice they inform.
- Respond in writing, or through video or audio recording, in around 500 words, to the prompt: How have specific aspects of Halliday's work influenced your EAP practice? The written, audio and video texts will be collated for the Special Issue.
- Review articles for this special issue. If you would like to contribute as a JEAP reviewer for this special issue, please let us know. We are looking for a good mix of more theoretical SFL scholars and practising EAP professionals.
Sheena Gardner ( and Jim Donohue ( are the editors for this special issue, to be published in 2019, supported by the JEAP editors, Paul Thompson and Hilary Nesi. Please contact us if you have any questions.
