The theme of this year's BAAHE conference is "From theory to application (and back again)". Adopting a particular theoretical framework can help focus research and open up new avenues, while at the same time fine-grained descriptive advances need to be fed back into theory so as to refine and perfect it. We invite papers which address this dialectic either at a more general level or in specific case studies, from within (and across) any of the areas traditionally covered by BAAHE members. Topics of special interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
Abstract submission is now closed.
Publication of selected papers
Presenters at the BAAHE conference will be encouraged to submit a written up version of their paper to BAAHE's journal English Text Construction, where it will be subject to external peer reviewing.
Both Cambridge University Press and Oxford University Press will put on display a selection of titles from their ELT as well as academic divisions.
