Learners and Networks Conference - March 16-18, 2011
Vocabulary Acquisition Research Group / Language Research Centre / Swansea University (UK) March 16-18, 2011 / Dylan Thomas Centre, Swansea
Susan Hunston, University of Birmingham, UK
Paul Meara, Swansea University, UK
Norman Segalowitz, Concordia University, Canada
The Learners and Networks Conference celebrates 21 years of the Vocabulary Acquisition Research Group at Swansea. The Group was established and has been led by Professor Paul Meara, and the conference will also mark Paul’s retirement. The conference theme reflects Paul’s own contribution to the field, and it is anticipated that most papers will have a lexical focus. The theme can be broadly interpreted to include papers which focus on the language learner and/or on representations of language systems as networks.
The conference will combine two formats: a single strand of 18 individual presentations and an exhibition of up to 40 poster presentations.
Please feel free to forward this information to anyone else who might be interested in attending the conference. We look forward to seeing you in Swansea in March!
