Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics

Call Deadline: 30-Apr-2021

Meeting Description:

This symposium is organized and hosted by the Applied Linguistics Research Lab at the College of Humanities, Prince Sultan University (PSU). It aims at promoting Applied Linguistic research in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Area through bringing together international names and high-quality research in various Applied Linguistic disciplines. These include, but are not limited to, Translation and Stylistics, Second Language Acquisition, Assessment, Corpus Linguistics and Discourse Analysis, and Psycholinguistics and Bilingualism.

ALR2021 will focus on the interdisciplinary character of Applied Linguistics research. Applied Linguists often collaborate with researchers in other disciplines in order to have a comprehensive understanding of language use. Closely related disciplines are Psychology, Sociology, Data Science, Cultural Studies, Law, Education, among others. This is even reflected in the names of many sub-disciplines of Applied Linguistics, including Psycholinguistics, Sociolinguistics, Intercultural Pragmatics, Forensic Linguistics and Educational Linguistics. ALR2021 will highlight this interdisciplinary nature of language studies and will emphasize the need for this interdisciplinary perspective to enhance our understanding of language and our ability to develop the practical applications for our research efforts.
