14th Warwick International Postgraduate Conference in Applied Linguistics (28th - 29th June 2011)

 [Posted on 24th June] The final version of the PG Conference programme and the abstracts are available on the website. Please refer to the latest files before deciding which sessions to attend. Thank you very much.

The Postgraduate Conference aims to offer the opportunity for postgraduate students from various areas in language teaching and applied linguistics from any institution to present their research, to attend experts' keynote presentations, to meet peers who engage in similar research activities, to practise their presentation skills, and to get valuable feedback on their research.

This year will see our successful pre-conference workshops on the previous day by distinguished researchers from our Centre which will cover various aspects of research methodology and research themes. We welcome anyone to attend the workshops.
