What's on in Applied Linguistics ...

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the May 2021 AILA Newsletter.

The organizers of two major congresses in our field, the 2021 AILA World Congress and the 17th International Pragmatics Conference, have decided to go for the online-only option to avoid arduous last-minute changes. Covid still takes its toll.

But there are opportunities to take advantage of, too, such as:
  • creatively dealing with volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity in Malaysia
  • learning lessons from the pandemic in Europe (a free webinar)
  • networking online by using our AILA Research Sharepoint, Career Center, and Study Platform
On a very practical note, the AILA App offers discounts on books of publishers who cannot attend real-world congresses and book exhibitions either in these times. Moreover, the AILA App helps you get more for less at the AILA World Congress.

Download the free AILA App to benefit from all special offers to AILA members:

Best wishes,

Professor Daniel Perrin
President, AILA International Association of Applied Linguistics
