12th AILA-Europe Junior Researchers’ Meeting in Applied Linguistics

August 12, 2020

Groningen, Netherlands

 

 

AILA Europe and the Dutch Society for Applied Linguistics (Anéla) are organizing the 12th AILA-Europe Junior Researchers' Meeting in Applied Linguistics in Groningen, August 12, 2020.

The 12th Junior Researchers' Meeting (JRM) will be part of the AILA World Congress, which takes place 9-14 August, in Groningen, the Netherlands. The JRM will be held in the form of a two-slot-symposium. In this symposium, we would like for junior researchers to present their papers on any topic within applied linguistics, but preferably on the conference theme "The dynamics of language, communication, and culture in a changing world."

Presenters will be asked about the kind of feedback or help they need, and the organizers will invite designated senior researchers as commentators to foster questions and discussion.

The aim of JRMs is to promote young researchers in applied linguistics from all over Europe by providing a platform in which they can present and discuss their research findings, ongoing studies, and projects in an interactive and informal international environment. Junior Researchers include those working on their Master’s and PhD theses, as well as those who have graduated within the last three years.
