Global Englishes and SLA: Establishing a Dialogue and Common Research Agenda

Language Learning Round Table

Organizer: Peter De Costa
Assistant Professor, Linguistics & Germanic, Slavic, Asian, & African Languages
Michigan State University

Abstract:

This colloquium taps the synergies afforded by developments in Global Englishes and SLA research in order to better account for the multilingual realities of language learners. Such an interdisciplinary alliance is made possible by the (1) broader practice turn in applied linguistics; (2) growing focus on the dynamicity and complexity of language use that recognizes the emergent nature of language in contemporary settings; and (3) inclusion of naturalistic inquiry in SLA research and a mounting interest by Global Englishes scholars in pedagogy. Together, these positive shifts suggest that a common research agenda can be established between these two vibrant sub-fields.
