CALL FOR PAPERS

Conference dates: 14 – 16. September, 2018
Hosted by the Vigdís Finnbogadóttir Institute for Languages, University of Iceland http://vigdis.hi.is/

We are delighted to invite you to the Vigdís Finnbogadóttir Institute for Languages, a UNESCO Centre, at the University of Iceland for the next PRISEAL Conference. This is the fourth conference building the community and developing 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.

Aiming at a better understanding of how research supports practice of users of English as an Additional Language, we invite submissions from journal publishers, editors and reviewers; authors and translators; teachers, materials writers and course designers for English for Research Publication Purposes; and scholars within humanities and social science fields including applied linguistics.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • academic publishing issues (e.g. advantages and limitations of open-access vs. commercial publishers; predatory journals and publishers)
  • the geopolitics of academic writing (e.g. dominance of English, epistemicide, 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

Confirmed Plenary Speakers:
Karen Englander, York University, Ontario.
Anne Kristina Hultgren, Open University.
Hafdís Ingvarsdóttir, University of Iceland.
