The Intercultural Communication Special Interest Group of the British Association for Applied Linguistics would like to announce the next annual seminar to take place on 22nd and 23rd May 2014 at the University of Edinburgh. We are delighted to announce that the following keynote speakers:

  • Professor Zhu Hua, Birkbeck College, University of London
  • Professor Tony Liddicoat, University of South Australia
  • Dr Jo Angouri, University of Warwick
  • Dr Joan Cutting, University of Edinburgh

Call for contributors:

This two-day seminar will focus on the theme ‘Language Teaching and Language
Learning’, taking a broad view of the diverse contexts in which intercultural
communication is developed through the medium of language.

In seeking to promote inter-disciplinary dialogue, the Committee would like to invite abstracts from researchers and practitioners developing empirical work in relevant areas. Particularly encouraged are submissions that examine the implementation of teaching methodologies contributing to the development of Intercultural Communication.

The seminar will be intentionally small in order to allow for dialogue and discussion as a means of bridging theory and practice, contributing to the application of established theory to real contexts of language teaching and language learning. Abstracts of no more than 200 words should be submitted by 14th March 2014, to baaledinburgh@outlook.com.

Registration available at: http://www.epay.ed.ac.uk/browse/department.asp?compid=1&modid=2&deptid=69 (Under Moray House School of Education). Please note that online payment closes on 15th May.
