  • the geopolitics of academic writing (e.g. dominance of English, English as a Lingua Franca)
  • academic ethics from a cross-cultural perspective (e.g. plagiarism and academic integrity)
  • the process of writing for publication
  • translation and editing in the academic context
  • assessing and teaching English for research and publication purposes
  • peer-review in intercultural and multilingual contexts

Second Call for Papers

This is the second call for papers for the PRISEAL 4 Conference to be hosted by the Vigdís Finnbogadóttir Institute for Languages, a UNESCO Centre, at the University of Iceland. This conference will continue the debates begun in Tenerife (2007), Katowice (2011) and Coimbra (2015). The issues and challenges discussed there have intensified for researchers of all disciplines who use English as an Additional Language and research and practice have moved to address them in interesting ways.

Our 2018 theme – Research and Practice: Moving Forward – is designed to encourage contributions from the widest possible range of scholars and practitioners involved in EAL/ERPP today.

Conference dates: 14 – 16. September, 2018.  Please see conference website:
