Meeting Description:

Envisioning the Future in Academic and Professional Languages: Emerging Trends in Teaching and Research

20 and 21 June 2019
Instituto Cultura y Sociedad, Universidad de Navarra, Pamplona, Spain

This conference is aimed at those who are interested in all aspects of research and applications of languages for specific purposes and professional discourses. It is the 18th Annual Conference organised under the auspices of the Asociación Europea de Lenguas para Fines Específicos (AELFE).

Call for Papers:

The pressures of globalization mean that the need for high level language competences is clearly greater than ever before. But paradoxically, the current panorama in European Higher Education poses many challenges to professionals who teach and research in the area of academic and professional languages.

The rise of English Medium Instruction has questioned the role of those who teach English for specific and academic purposes. At the same time, there is now an excellent opportunity to move away from low-level ESP to teaching professional communication competences - which offers an excellent occasion for ESP specialists to develop new areas of expertise.

For other languages (Spanish, Basque, German, French, etc.), the spread of exchange programs, the creation of trilingual degrees, and the EU’s 2 + 1 policy define a landscape with ample opportunities for the expansion of language teaching and research. AELFE 2019 is intended as a forum to bring together researchers, academics and language professionals from Europe and beyond who are concerned with these opportunities and threats.

This conference is aimed at those who are interested in all aspects of research and applications of languages for specific purposes and professional discourses. Selected papers from the conference will appear in a reputed academic journal and in a special volume of peer-reviewed selected presentations published by the Universidad de Navarra.

Submission of Proposals:
Proposals should be 300 words in length, and may be submitted to aelfeunav.es before 10 March 2019.
