Meeting Description:

Rapprochement between linguistics and language studies, and the more traditional literary studies is a global trend which includes Hong Kong as well as many other parts of the world. This rapprochement is underway in both academic circles and in the classroom, bringing with it many of challenges in research, teaching and learning.  APELA aims at gathering professionals and practitioners in the field to explore and rethink these areas and relations, applications and interpretations in the contemporary context. 

Call For Papers

Language arts in its new form is in part a response to profound changes in curriculum, and in part a response to similarly profound changes in the globalised, media-driven cultural contexts of literature.  Language arts now embraces new forms, as new media revisions and represents traditional literary works.  Language and literature have much to offer each other.  These developments are particularly affecting the teaching of English and Putonghua as second languages. 

The 1st Conference on Applying (Putonghua / English) Language Arts (APELA) invites papers exploring and rethinking these areas and relations, 
	applications and interpretations in the contemporary context. We encourage papers adopting a variety of themes, perspectives, and approaches.  We invite papers treating, but not limited to, the following topics: 
- contributions of linguistics to the study of literature, and of literature to the study of linguistics
- language-arts-related academic and action research studies in areas such as literature, drama, popular culture, and the oral language arts
- specific methods relating to the delivery of language arts in the English Medium of Instruction classroom
- role-play, scenario and simulation in the classroom
- literature and language-related subjects raised by the use of playable media and applications as teaching tools, including interactivity, immersivity, ludology and narrativity in games, MMORPGs, cyberdrama, telephony and other playable media 
- professional challenges and opportunities presented by the new Language Arts curricula and approaches
