Summary

The goal of the conference is to bring together junior researchers and give them an opportunity to practise their presentation skills in English and discuss their work with specialists in their field. Topics relevant to the conference encompass all fields of linguistics focusing on the English language, including, but not restricted to, first and second language acquisition, language teaching and learning, sociolinguistics, pragmatics, discourse analysis, conversation analysis, corpus linguistics, lexicology and lexicography, translation and interpretation, and phonetics. Different perspectives can be adopted (methods of data collection, multimodality, etc.). Contributions exploring the questions of "affect", "stance" and "intersubjectivity" or any other related subjects (dialogicity, expression of emotions, modality, etc.) will be greatly appreciated.

This year, we are delighted to welcome Émilie L’Hôte, Associate Professor in English linguistics at Paris Diderot University – Paris 7 as our keynote speaker.

Graduate students (i.e. second-year Master’s and PhD students) as well as first-year post-docs are encouraged to apply. The conference language is English and each presentation will be allotted a 20-minute slot followed by 10 minutes for discussion.

Topics relevant to the conference encompass all fields of linguistics focusing on the English language, including, but not restricted to, first and second language acquisition, language teaching and learning, sociolinguistics, pragmatics, discourse analysis, conversation analysis, corpus linguistics, lexicology and lexicography, translation and interpretation, and phonetics.

Different perspectives can be adopted (methods of data collection, multimodality, etc.). Contributions exploring the questions of ‘affect’, ‘stance’ and ‘intersubjectivity’ or any other related subjects (dialogicity, expression of emotions, modality, etc.) will be greatly appreciated.

In order to make scientific comments and help participants become more efficient communicators, two discussion sessions will be organised during the day to provide friendly feedback.
