Call Deadline: 20-Feb-2021

Meeting Description:

The Institute of Linguistics, School of English at the University of Silesia is pleased to announce the 32nd International Conference on Foreign and Second Language Acquisition (ICFSLA). As it has been for over thirty years now, this conference focuses on research in second language acquisition and foreign language learning, relating to different aspects of both the teaching and learning of second/foreign languages. The main topic of the upcoming 2020 conference is: Narratives of Success and Failure: Stories from Foreign Language Teachers and Learners. The theme itself is self-explanatory, needing little further elaboration. We imagine that research interests relating to perceptions of what constitutes success and failure in a second/foreign language context from the perspective of a teacher and/or a learner (as well as the factors determining those) will constitute the major focus of the presentations. In addition to the leading theme, we also accept selected proposals in other areas of SLA research of interest to our conference participants for our varia sessions. We would like to continue with an academic publishers´ session for less experienced scholars (but not only!), where they can get updated information on selected journals directly from their editors and can also receive advice and guidance on how to prepare their articles to fulfil the demands of an academic journal to be accepted for publication.

Call for Papers:

Traditionally, in addition to the leading theme, we also accept selected proposals in other areas of SLA research of interest to our conference participants for our various sessions. Please do not hesitate to consider submitting the proposal even if it does not follow the main theme of the conference (we would like to make it clear that the choice of the topic – as long as it relates to SLA in some way, is not the criterion for the acceptance of the proposed abstract. Our conference participants are interested in different areas of SLA research).

Paper abstracts, together with your registration form and your data (excel database) should be sent before the 20 February 2021 to our e-mail address: szczyrk2021gmail.com.

Please send your abstract again even if it was accepted last year.

You will be notified about acceptance by 1 March.

The plenary talks will be given by:
- Prof. Christine Gkonou (University of Essex, Colchester)
- Prof. Hanna Komorowska (University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Warsaw)
- Prof. Agnieszka Otwinowska- Kasztelanic (Warsaw University, Warsaw)
- Prof. Simone Pfenninger (University of Salzburg, Salzburg)
- Prof. David Singleton (Professor Emeritus, Trinity College, Dublin)
