ALANZ / ALAA / ALTAANZ Conference, Nov 2017

We’re pleased to announce details of the fifth combined ALANZ-ALAA-ALTAANZ conference.

Location:          City campus, Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand
Dates:              27 – 29 November 2017

Conference theme

Applied Linguistics in the New Millennium: Multiple Theories, Pathways, and Practices”

The theme aims to be inclusive of the breadth of the field of applied linguistics. As applied linguists, we’re interested in language learning, language teaching, and how people use language to express their relationship to the world. We’re also interested in issues of identity, in creating corpora, in language policy, just to name a few. What unites us, however, is our interest in researching language-related problems in the real world.
