Professor of African Linguistics and Sociolinguistics at Ghent University,
Belgium. 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

*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. Hornberger,
Springer, 2008); *Linguistic landscape: Expanding the scenery, *(ed. with
D. Gorter, Routledge, 2009); and *Linguistic landscape in the city* (ed.
with E. Ben Rafael & M. Barni, Multilingual Matters, 2010). Elana is the
