As you may be aware, the 2020 BAAL conference has been postponed until 2021. Instead of the annual event, the BAAL committee has decided to offer a series of SIG-based, on-line talks. The LKALE SIG will be brilliantly represented at the event by Ian Cushing, one of our new committee members (more on this below!). Ian will be talking about “Language ideologies, policies and prejudice in England’s education system.” (Abstract available here). Please do not forget to register for the event! (Schedule and registration information for this event can be found here).
We are also very happy to announce that LKALE has a ‘brand-new’ SIG committee with new roles, new faces and new ideas which we hope to share with you in the coming months. Information on the new configuration of the committee can be found here.
Finally, we would like to thank our out-going committee members, Prof. Ursula Clark, Dr. Lise Fontaine and Dr Nick Moore for all their enthusiasm and hard work in the last four years– we know they will still be involved in the SIG in other ways.
Watch the space– new information on our plans for the next academic session will be here soon!
We are very sorry to announce that the 2020 LKALE SIG meeting (Glasgow, 25th and 26th June) has to be postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Information on the new dates, travel and accommodation arrangements etc will be posted here as soon as we can.
Please take good care of yourself. We look forward to seeing you in Glasgow soon(ish),
We are looking forward to welcoming you to the 2019 SIG meeting. Please note that no paper copies of either the programme or the abstracts will be available on the day. To download and save/print, please click on the relevant links below.
