Conceptualising language in EMI: studies from international universities in Europe and Asia 

The provision of English-Medium-Instruction (EMI) in non-Anglophone settings and the number of international students in Anglophone settings continue to rise at unprecedented levels. This leads to significant linguistic and educational issues for the universities involved. This day-long workshop will explore the role of language(s) in EMI through a series of invited talks and a round-table discussion, addressing conceptual considerations as well as studies from the UK, continental Europe and Asia.

Talks included:

  • Ute Smit (Universität Wien) - ‘English-medium education: On plurilingual practices in an international classroom’
  • Will Baker, Julia Hüttner (University of Southampton), Naowarat Patipatpakdee, Sompratana Ratanakul (Silpakorn University) - ‘”We’re not the language police” - The role of English(es) in language policies and perspectives in multilingual universities’
  • Francesca Helm (Università di Padova) - ‘Italian lecturers' perspectives on EMI: A transdisciplinary case study ’
  • Miya Komori-Glatz (WU Business University Vienna) - ‘EMI and Internationalisation in European Business Education’
