Applied Linguistics in the News


To raise awareness and visibility of the field of applied linguistics and our public scholars, we are accepting submissions of recent (same calendar year) news contributions featuring applied linguists. The featured scholars do not need to be AAAL members. “News” can refer to TV, radio, newspapers (print or digital), and other media that would normally be interpreted as major news sources. The applied linguists can either be authors of the pieces (e.g., Op Ed pieces) or be featured in journalists’ pieces. The focus of the news items should be an applied linguistics issue.
