Educational Linguistics 2024: Language(s) from Childhood to Adult Age

We welcome you to the conference Educational Linguistics 2024: Language(s) from Childhood to Adult Age at Linnaeus University. Researchers, both established and new to the field of educational linguistics, are invited to join us in Kalmar, 11–13 September 2024.

The conference covers perspectives on language(s) within education from early childhood to adult and tertiary education. This is a multidisciplinary conference where presentations will focus on the intersection between language and education, such as how language is used in educational contexts and how language impacts teaching and learning processes. The field of educational linguistics encompasses, but is not limited to perspectives from linguistics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, and education. 

Keynote speakers: Francis Hult, Donna Coch and Eva Lindgren

The conference programme includes keynote speakers, oral presentations, poster sessions, and a panel discussion. The invited keynotes are three internationally renowned professors with different research backgrounds (from left to right): Francis M. Hult (USA), Donna Coch (USA), and Eva Lindgren (Sweden). The constellation of the keynotes speaks for the diversity of the field of educational linguistics and the broad focus of the conference.
