Meeting Description:

52nd Annual Meeting of the British Association for Applied Linguistics

Theme: ''Broadening the Horizons of Applied Linguistics''
29-31 August 2019
Manchester Metropolitan University, England, UK

BAAL 2019 will be held at Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester, UK.

Our theme- Broadening the Horizons of Applied Linguistics – takes as its premise that applied linguistics underpins a vast range of disciplines, and we intend the 2019 meeting to encourage exploration of the role that applied linguistics plays in many walks of life. We hope the conference theme will encourage proposals from a wide range of disciplines and that this in turn will encourage cross-disciplinary dissemination of ideas and research. Our Local Organising Committee is drawn from different faculties and departments across the university – the School of Teacher Education and Professional Development and the School of Childhood, Youth and Educational Studies, both within the Faculty of Education, the Department of Languages, Information and Communications within the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, and the Faculty of Health, Psychology & Social Care.

The BAAL 2019 conference is hosted by the Faculty of Education, located in the Brooks Building in the centre of Manchester. Manchester is a vibrant, lively city which not only has a rich industrial heritage but is also home to an exciting and varied cultural life. Manchester is only two hours from London by train, and in easy reach of Liverpool, Chester, North Wales and the Lake District, the Peak District and Yorkshire. The campus is easily accessible by car and rail. The University is a 20-minute walk or a short taxi ride from the train station. There is a direct train from Manchester Airport.

Plenary Speakers:

Julia Carroll – University of Coventry
Tim Grant – Aston University
Kate Pahl - Manchester Metropolitan University
Adrian Holliday – Canterbury Christ Church University (Pit Corder lecture)
