He holds honorary appointments at University of the Western Cape (South Africa) and Beijing Language and Culture University (China) and is group leader of the Max Planck Sociolinguistic Diversity Working Group. He has published widely on language ideologies and language inequality in the context of globalization. Publications include The Sociolinguistics of Globalization (Cambridge University Press, 2010), Ethnographic Fieldwork: A Beginner's Guide (Multilingual Matters 2010), Grassroots Literacy (Routledge, 2008), Discourse: A Critical Introduction (Cambridge University Press, 2005) and Language Ideological Debates (Mouton de Gruyter, 1999).

Professor Anne Cutler

University of Western Sydney

Anne Cutler is Research Professor at The MARCS Institute, University of Western Sydney. She studied in Australia, Germany and the US, and worked in the UK before becoming, from 1993 to 2013, a director of the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, and Professor of Comparative Psycholinguistics, University of Nijmegen, both in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. She is a fellow of a number of scientific academies on three continents, and in 1999 received the Spinoza Prize (highest scientific prize in the Netherlands). Her research centres on the recognition of spoken language, in particular how listening to speech is adapted, from the earliest opportunity onwards, to suit the native language. This has led her to undertake research in many different languages, including Sesotho, Telugu, Korean, Finnish, Japanese, Cantonese and Arabic besides the Romance (French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian) and Germanic (English, Dutch, German) families more familiar to Western audiences. Her book, Native Listening, was published by MIT Press in 2012.

Professor Nicholas Evans

Australian National University

Nicholas Evans is Professor of Linguistics at the College of Asia/Pacific, Australian National University. He has carried out wide-ranging fieldwork on languages of northern Australia and Papua New Guinea, and the driving interest of his work is the interplay between documenting endangered languages and the many scientific and humanistic questions they can help us answer. In addition to grammars of two Aboriginal languages, Kayardild and Bininj Gun-wok, dictionaries of Dalabon and Kayardild); edited collections on a number of linguistic topics, and over 120 scientific papers, he recently published the widely-acclaimed crossover book Dying Words: Endangered Languages and What They Have to Tell Us which sets out a broad program for the field's engagement with the world's dwindling linguistic diversity. He has also worked as a linguist, interpreter and anthropologist in two Native Title claims in northern Australia, and as a promotor of Aboriginal art by the Bentinck Island women's artists.

Professor Li Wei

University of London

Li Wei is Professor of Applied Linguistics at Birkbeck College, University of London, UK, where he is also Pro-Vice-Master and Director of the Birkbeck Graduate Research School. He was born and grew up in Beijing, China and began working as an English language teacher when he was 19. He later studied at Beijing Normal University and Newcastle University in England where he worked with Lesley Milroy on a series of sociolinguistics projects on the Chinese immigrant communities in Britain. His main research interests are in the broad field of bilingualism and multilingualism, including Bilingual and Multilingual First Language Acquisition (BAMFLA), early second language acquisition (ESLA), speech and language disorders of bilingual and multilingual speakers, pragmatics of codeswitching, bilingual education, and intercultural communication. His current work focuses on the creativity and criticality of multilingual speakers. He is author and editor of numerous publications, most notably, Three Generations Two Languages One Family (1994), The Bilingualism Reader (2000, 2007), and Blackwell Guide to Research Methods in Bilingualism and Multilingualism (with Melissa Moyer, 2008) which won the 2009 BAAL Book Prize. He is Principal Editor of the International Journal of Bilingualism. He is an Academician of the Academy of Social Sciences, UK, and Chair of the University of Council of General & Applied Linguistics (UCGAL), UK.

Professor Lourdes Ortega

Georgetown University

Lourdes Ortega is Professor in the Department of Linguistics at Georgetown University, and she has held previous positions at Georgia State University, Northern Arizona University, and the University of Hawaii. Her main area of research is in second language acquisition, particularly socio-cognitive and educational dimensions of additional language learning in adult classroom settings. She has also long-standing interests in second language writing and foreign language education and has published widely about systematic research synthesis and epistemological and ethical dimensions of second language acquisition research. In the last few years she has become interested in applying insights from bilingualism, usage-based linguistics, and transdisciplinarity to the investigation of second language development. She is originally from Spain, where she also received her first degree in Spanish Philology. She has lived in Germany, Greece, and since 1993 in the United States. She was co-recipient of the Pimsleur and the TESOL Research awards in 2000 and has been a doctoral Mellon fellow (1999), a postdoctoral Spencer/National Academy of Education fellow (2003), and a senior research fellow at the Freiburg Institute of Advanced Studies (2010). Her publications include the book Understanding Second Language Acquisition (Hodder, 2009) and several co-edited collections with John Benjamins and Routledge. She served as area editor for "Language Learning and Teaching" for the Wiley Encyclopedia of Applied Linguistics (2012). She is the editor of Language Learning for the five-year term of 2010-2015 and serves on the editorial boards of a number of other journals.

Professor Elana Shohamy

Tel Aviv University

Elana Shohamy is a professor of language education at the School of Education, Tel Aviv University, Israel. Her research, teaching and writings focus on a variety of topics related to language testing, language policy and migration within a critical perspective, in the contexts of conflicts, co-existence and rights. A central component of her work in the last decade has been in the field of 'linguistic landscape', referring to the study of languages and their representations in public space in contexts of multilingualism, multimodalities, visual literacy, urban spaces, language policy and within a focus on public spaces as arenas of contestation and negotiations. Elana has published extensively on all these topics. Her authored and edited books include: The languages of Israel: Ideology, policy and practice (with B. Spolsky, Multilingual Matters, 1999); The power of tests (Longman, 2001); Language policy: Hidden agendas and new approaches (Routledge, 2006); Encyclopedia of Language and Education: Language Testing and Assessment, Volume 7 (ed. with N.
