1st Korean Applied Linguistics Conference

Pennsylvania State University

Feb 25-26, virtual conference

The Penn State Institute for Korean Studies is hosting the 1st Korean Applied Linguistics conference, Innovative Perspectives, Methodologies, and Approaches in Korean Applied Linguistics.

Theme: Innovative Perspectives, Methodologies, and Approaches in Korean Applied Linguistics
Keynote Speakers: Dr. Danielle O. Pyun (Ohio State University), Dr. Susan Strauss (Penn State University), Dr. Jongoh Eun (DLI), and Hyunwoo Sun (Talk to me in Korean CEO and Developer)

With the growing enrollments in Korean programs and advances in Korean as a second language (KSL) theories, KSL has emerged as an independent academic discipline within the field of second/foreign language studies. It is, therefore, timely to bring researchers and practitioners together to define the field and present the latest research in KSL. The aim of the conference is to create a venue to present critical accounts of cutting-edge research within the field of KSL and its major subfields.
