Dear Edling members,

AAAL has recently posted strand descriptions on its website.  The description of the Educational Linguistics strand reads as follows:

The Educational Linguistics strand encompasses a wide range of topics related to language (in) education, generally with a focus on and/or implications for practice and/or policy.  The unifying element is attention to education, whether formal or informal, rather than any particular theoretical or methodological perspective.  As such, the strand is open to transdisciplinary research as well as work that cuts across or combines areas in various ways (e.g., SLA and language ideologies, pedagogy and policy, literacy and sociolinguistics, among many other possibilities).  It is this openness to applying a potentially wide range of perspectives to investigating language (in) education issues that is the hallmark of educational linguistics.

The full call for papers for the 2016 conference in Orlando is available here:


Submissions are accepted until 11:59pm on 19 August.
