English Scholars Beyond Borders Conference

English Scholars Beyond Borders (ESBB) is a non-profit circle of international academics. The aim of ESBB conferences is to assemble English teachers and scholars from across the globe to expand conceptual horizons. The conference will explore the diverse borders and boundaries that English teachers and scholars must negotiate to achieve success and to benefit learners.

ESBB acknowledges the ‘multicentricity’ of English scholarship and welcomes scholars from all locations. While the conference theme is English Beyond Borders, ESBB conferences embrace the local and the global. We are keen to hear from presenters wishing to discuss a very local issue.

We invite papers on the following themes:

• English for research publication purposes
• Studies which critically investigate academic publishing from the perspectives of authors, reviewers/editors, and Open Access;
• Multilingual scholars in study and publication
• Non-blind dialogic review
• Multi/bilingual issues in language learning and linguistics
• EAP/ESP across borders
• English literature across borders
• CLIL (Content and Language Integrated learning)/EMI (English Medium Instruction)
• Study abroad and International exchange
• Interdisciplinary issues in TESOL
• Encouraging (cultural) diversity in voice and agency
• New directions in critical thinking and reasoning
• Using technology to cross borders
• Role of corpora in language teaching and research
• Migrants and refugees in language learning

Proposals are invited on any aspect of the above themes. English will be the working language of the conference. Proposals should include a brief biodata, a 50-75 word abstract and a one page summary of approximately 300 words.

The deadline for submission of proposals is 1 February 2017.

The registration fee is £195 per delegate and includes the conference pack, refreshments, lunch and inclusion of your paper in the seminar proceedings, if accepted for publication. Registration fee for students is £145 per delegate.
