Asla 2022


Symposium ASLA 2022

The national symposium of ASLA, the Swedish Association for Applied Linguistics, takes place on 7–8 April 2022 at the Department of Swedish Language and Multilingualism, Stockholm University.

The theme is Language in practice – in a changing world, which should be interpreted in a broad and creative sense. Contributions in applied linguistics that are not directly related to the theme are also welcome. In addition to paper presentations, the symposium will have four plenary lectures and a panel discussion on Linguistics and politics in a changing society.

We hope to hold the conference on site. However, given the current circumstances with Covid-19, we are preparing for alternative forms of organization and the possibility of digital participation. More information on this will come soon.
