IAWE 2018

23rd International Association for World Englishes Conference

Thu, 31 May 2018 – Sat, 02 Jun 2018

Contact between English and other languages in the rich multilingual contexts of our world has always been a key area of World Englishes theory, practice, and research. It is in these contexts where language ecologies of English and other languages develop and evolve. It is out of the fluid nature of language contact and change that this year's conference focuses on the theme of "World Englishes and Multilingual Realities: Evolutions, Interfaces, and Trajectories."

​This fluidity gives rise to varied areas of research which are related but not limited to

·      Creative writing

·      Discourse analysis

·      Englishes in the margins

·      Language development and change

·      Language ecology

·      Language pedagogy

·      Language policy

·      Linguistic landscapes

·      Literary studies

·      Multimodal studies

 Proposals on any of these sub-themes are most welcome.
