What's on in Applied Linguistics ...



Dear Colleagues,

Thank you for all the positive and constructive feedback on the third AILA Newsletter. In this fourth issue, these ideas have been implemented, for example, in the new AILA Career Center section. Once again, the news mirrors the AILA global network’s passion for what matters in our field and beyond.

Key topics in the October 2018 newsletter include:
  • Celebrating 40 years of ALAK
  • Launching the Society for Applied Linguistics in Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • Educating global citizens through foreign language teaching in the digital age
  • Intertwining communication, medicine, and ethics
  • Using language in the media to mediate resistance
After a pilot phase in the first half of 2018, I am sending three issues of the AILA newsletter to all of the officers of national affiliates. I invite you to
spread the word in your Applied Linguistics associations and subscribe to the newsletter here: aila.info

I am looking forward to reading your comments about the newsletter, to further improving it, and to seeing some of you in early December at the launch of the AILA ASEAN regional network.

Best wishes,

Professor Daniel Perrin
President, AILA International Association of Applied Linguistics
