PIM: EAP and Intercultural Communication

17th June 2022 @ 9:30am - 5:00pm

£20.00 – £150.00

The Language Centre at the University of Leeds will host a one-day Professional Issues Meeting (PIM) on the relationship between Intercultural Communication and EAP on Friday 17th June, 2022. The PIM will be held on campus at the University of Leeds and presentations will be live-streamed where possible. Colleagues will also be able to submit and view recorded presentations online.

 

Plenary Speakers

Professor Prue Holmes, University of Durham

Professor Adrian Holliday, Canterbury Christ Church

Both plenary speakers are leading scholars in intercultural education and have considerable experience in ‘EAP-related’ activities working with students from diverse disciplinary and linguistic backgrounds in HE contexts.

Rationale and themes

Intercultural communication (IC) is a well-established area of linguistics, applied linguistics and sociolinguistics and yet its explicit relationship to English for Academic Purposes (EAP) can be overlooked or articulated only indirectly.

Lecturers, tutors and practitioners in EAP are often interested in interculturality or intercultural communication from various perspectives including the role of intercultural communication and awareness in academic contexts. EAP practitioners, like many of the students we teach, are often cultural sojourners to academic disciplines in which they may not be typical subject experts. In this sense, we might use our linguistic, intercultural and ethnographic knowledge and expertise to understand the genres, literacies, expectations and practices of particular disciplines and academic communities, as well as of the larger academic culture in higher education institutions.

Themes or issues which presenters may wish to address:

  • Overlaps between EAP and IC
  • Conceptualising academic culture(s) and interculturality
  • Identity and othering in EAP and IC
  • Approaches to intercultural education and pedagogy
  • Academic literacies and IC
  • [How] Is Transnational Education (TNE) intercultural?
  • [How] Is working with other disciplines intercultural?
  • EAP and ‘inter’ national / ‘inter’ cultural classrooms
  • Politics and policies in the ‘global’ university
  • Developing intercultural competencies in ourselves and our students
  • Intercultural Challenges and EAP
  • Intercultural rhetoric

Call for papers

Colleagues are invited to submit an abstract using the attached form for in-person 30-minute presentations (plus 10-minute Q&A), 25-minute recorded presentations, 30-40 minute workshops, symposia / round table discussions from SiGs or poster presentations on aspects of your practice, pedagogy or scholarship which explore the connections, disconnections or overlaps between EAP and intercultural communication.

We welcome proposals from practitioners, lecturers, tutors and your students where aspects of EAP and Intercultural Communication intersect in your work. Presentations can be individual or joint. Special interest groups may wish to hold a symposium or round table discussion.

Please send the proposal form to M.J.Parkin@leeds.ac.uk by Friday 20th May 2022.  Please write ‘PIM Proposal’ in the email subject line.
