Publicerad: 1 januari 2015

The conference will be held at Luleå University of Technology (LTU), 20th–22nd May 2015.

The Subject of English and Education at the Department of Arts, Communication and Education at Luleå University of Technology is proud to host the National Forum for English Studies 2015.

The theme of the conference is "English and Education" with a particular focus on connections between current research in English and how English is taught at universities and schools throughout Sweden. In plenary sessions, poster sessions and working groups, we will discuss and reflect over current research projects and how these inform our work with undergraduates and society at large.

Delegates are encouraged to present their on-going projects in the form of short papers and posters or to propose a workshop. There will also be time set aside for meetings of the main professional groups, and delegates are encouraged to propose subjects for discussion to those convening the meetings.

Confirmed keynote speakers include Roxanne Harde (University of Alberta), Jeannette Littlemore (University of Birmingham), Eva Björck (The Swedish Research Council) and Norbert Schmitt (University of Nottingham).

We look forward to seeing you in Luleå
