Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics

Call Deadline: 07-Dec-2018

Meeting Description:

Following on from AFLA's (the French Association of Applied Linguistics) two
previous conferences: CRELA 2013 (Research Cultures in Applied Linguistics) &
TRELA (Research fields in Applied Linguistics), the PRELA conference
(Professionals and Research in Applied Linguistics) aims to question the
methodological challenges, social implications and perspectives for action in
the field of Applied Linguistics. The conference will address a variety of
situations and questions, such as: Can studies in applied linguistics
contribute to more inclusive education to better respond to the diversity of
learners?What can applied linguistics bring to the understanding of technology
mediated interactions? How can research in applied linguistics contribute to
improving ergonomics and communication in the workplace (in hospital,
aviation, police settings, etc.)?


Call for Papers:

Condamines & Narcy-Combes (2015) have recently suggested replacing the term
«applied linguistics» by «situated linguistics» following Brumfit’s (1977)
work on situated sciences. Brumfit argued that the aim was not simply to apply
research to a project but rather to engage in a process in which research and
social projects are interconnected and mutually transform one another.

Following on from AFLA’s (the French Association of Applied Linguistics) two
previous conferences: CRELA 2013 (Research Cultures in Applied Linguistics) &
TRELA (Research fields in Applied Linguistics), the PRELA conference
(Professionals and Research in Applied Linguistics) aims to question the
methodological challenges, social implications and perspectives for action in
the field of Applied Linguistics. The conference will address a variety of

improving ergonomics and communication in the workplace (in hospital,
aviation, police settings, etc.)?

PRELA 2019 is organised around three strands:

Strand 1 – Methodological challenges: Situated research, particularly when
conducted in sensitive fields, leads to the emergence of methodological
challenges which incite researchers to consider ethical questions (access to
research fields, explaining research topics, etc.) and questions linked to the
timescale of research in the face of societal transformations.

Strand 2 – Social implications: In the current context, where mobility and
exchanges between individuals characterise daily life (personal,
professional), socio-cultural and intergenerational diversity pose a real
challenge to our societies which tend towards greater social inclusion.

Strand 3 – Perspectives for action: In view of these challenges and concerns,
researchers in applied linguistics offer opportunities for action: through
valorising and popularising research; going back to the research field;
offering research support and training but also training through research; and
taking on political responsibilities.
