CALL FOR PAPERS


Multiperspectivity in Applied Linguistics


The Society for Applied Linguistics in Bosnia and Herzegovina is pleased to announce the 11th AILA-Europe Junior Researcher Meeting in Applied Linguistics which will take place on 26-28 September 2019. We are delighted to invite early career applied linguists to Sarajevo to present and discuss their research findings, ongoing studies and projects in an interactive environment and exchange experience with other young scholars from all around Europe. Junior Researchers include those working on their Master's and PhD theses, as well as those who have graduated within the last three years. Presenters are free to choose between three different formats: 15-minute presentations, 5-minute speed-papers or poster-presentations.

The 11th Junior Researcher Meeting will focus on Multiperspectivity in Applied Linguistics.

We will welcome papers and posters in the following areas:

  • Language & Discrimination
  • Language & Nationalism
  • Language Policies in the Balkans
  • Language, Ideology & Power
  • Language & Media

  • Speech and language therapy for aphasic patients
  • Language processing & Treatment of post-stroke language disorders
  • Language(s) & Education
  • Language & Gender
  • Language acquisition & Language learning

Other topics are also accepted.

At the conference, each session will have designated senior researchers as commentators to foster questions and discussion. The programme will also include workshops on various aspects of an academic career in applied linguistics.

Submission Guidelines

Abstracts within 200–250 words should be submitted here .

Abstracts will be evaluated according to the originality of the theme, clear methodology and theoretical framework, and scholarly contribution of the research.

Deadline for the Submission of Abstracts:    10 April 2019
Deadline for the Notification of Acceptance: 10 May 2019

Please clearly indicate whether you are submitting a proposal for a presentation, a speed paper, or a poster.

Presentations: Accepted papers will be divided into parallel sessions for oral paper presentations. Within each session, presenters will be provided with 20 minutes (15 minutes to present followed by a minimum of 5 minutes for discussion). Conference volunteers will be present at the parallel sessions to offer help and guidance with transferring presentations and any technology-related questions.

Speed papers: This format gives researchers an opportunity to present their work in an untraditional way. Researchers opting for this format are expected to engage in a five-minute speed presentation followed by 10 minutes for networking and discussion. The networking and discussion time is expressly intended to guarantee a dynamic approach.

Posters: The poster section provides an additional platform to present and discuss topics, projects and research findings (preliminary or otherwise) which are immediately relevant to the thematic scope of the conference. We encourage researchers attending with a poster to prioritize the visual benefits of the poster, thus downsizing the written presentation, in order to ensure discussion and interaction with fellow scholars. The poster format is the standard A0 (width:841 mm x height:1189mm)
