Due to numerous requests, the deadline for the TRELA 2015 Conference (Research fields in applied linguics) has been postponed until November 15 2014.
*Paris 8-10 July 2015*
Applied Linguistics in the 21^st Century is a rich and varied discipline, with many sub-domains. Each of these has its own research tradition, often associated with the particular countries in which it developed: language acquisition / learning, bi- and multi-lingualism, didactics, lexicography, corpus linguistics, terminology, translation studies, computational linguistics, variation, etc. However, these disciplines often share similar research fields. A prime example of this to look at the areas covered by the term /Applied Linguistics /and its equivalents /linguistique appliquée, //angewandte Linguistik,//Lingüística aplicada /in their respective languages.
Transdisciplinarity and multidisciplinarity are trademarks of the 21^st Century, as can be seen in the emergence of so many multi- or transdisciplinary fields, including examples which combine 'humanities' and 'pure sciences'. Applied Linguistics, because of the variety of fields which it is involved in, has followed the inexorable development of this process of hybridization. Furthermore, the practice of Applied Linguistics has come to involve not only the application of theoretical knowledge, but also the emergence of new fields of investigation, which then feed back into current debates within the language sciences.
The aim of the international conference TRELA is to follow up on the CRELA conference in Nancy 2013, and to allow researchers and other practitioners in the different fields of Applied Linguistics to discuss and debate issues relating to common areas of research, pooling ideas on these topics from a multidisciplinary or transdisciplinary perspective. To this end, we invite submissions on any of the following areas:
·The notion of 'area' or 'field' in Applied Linguistics (multicritieral analysis in specific areas, comparative analysis of different fields, etc.)
·Applied Linguistics and Linguistics:Are they two distinct'areas' or a single 'field' or can they not be divided?
·Models and multiple-theory approaches (combining several approaches to explore the same area)
·Resources, tools and methodologies to explore an 'area' (or conduct 'field' work).
·Applied Linguistics and Theoretical Linguistics: building a complementary approach? And what are the epistemological issues raised by obvious complementary?
Deadline for proposals: 15 November 2014
