We are pleased to announce the 13th annual Norwegian Forum for English for Academic Purposes summer conference, which will take place on Thursday the 6th and Friday the 7th of June 2019 at Oslo Metropolitan University in Oslo, Norway.
The theme for the 2019 conference is Articulations.
What obstacles are faced by learners and academics as they articulate ideas, or articulate themselves? What kinds of ideas, processes, things can be articulated in the context of higher education generally and within EAP specifically? What happens in the process of articulation, in the process of moving from or between abstract thoughts to written or spoken words? What qualifies as successful articulation, in speech or writing? NFEAP this year explores the conditions and consequences of articulation. We welcome work that discusses, for example, the articulation of ideas within texts or genres; the articulation of oneself or one’s research within a discipline; the processes by which learners come to by which learners come to articulate words, arguments, identities, and more.
We invite proposals that explore the idea of Articulations in connection with EAP concepts; EAP training methods, principles, practices and research; needs analysis, syllabus and materials design, teaching strategies and methodological issues; group/interdisciplinary teaching; critical EAP; e-learning and technology; academic identities; academic literacies; any other relevant topics.
Please submit your abstract of no more than 300 words and a biography of no more than 50 words by February 17th, 2019 using this link. The standard length for presentations is 30 minutes (20 minutes for presentation, plus 10 minutes for discussion). You will be notified of the outcome of the review process by March 17th, 2019.
