Meeting Description:

The 42nd International Conference of GERAS, Groupe d'Étude et de Recherche en Anglais de Spécialité (English for Specific Purposes Study and Research Group) will take place from March 18-20, 2021 at the Université de Lorraine (Nancy, France). The theme of the conference is: Literary and scientific culture(s): Continuities and Discontinuities in English for Specific Purposes.

During the 2021 GERAS annual conference, participants will be led to think about the breaks and continuities between literary and scientific cultures and, through the prism of this theme, to question the relationship between language skills and knowledge of the field, the scientific status of ESP and the pedagogical and translation practices that all these perspectives imply - among others.

Because of the current sanitary context that we are all facing at the moment, this year's GERAS conference will take place at a distance.
