23rd Warwick International Conference in Applied Linguistics

28th - 30th June 2021 | Online

University of Warwick


This interdisciplinary conference is a successful tradition at Warwick Applied Linguistics. Every year, it brings together many students (Undergraduates, Masters and PhDs) from within and outside the UK, studying various degrees, such as Linguistics, Business, Psychology, Politics, etc.

Being a ‘conference by students for students’, we aim to provide a platform for undergraduates, postgraduates and recent graduates to showcase their research and receive valuable feedback from other renowned scholars in the field. It is a great opportunity for participants to get in touch with leading scholars in the field and students from various disciplinary backgrounds.

This year, WICAL will be held online and we look forward to welcoming even more scholars, presenters, and attendants from across the world.

Updates on conference workshops and speakers are coming soon.
