Event details

Under the Researcher Links scheme offered within the Newton Fund, the British Council and the Thailand Research Fund will be holding a workshop on the above theme in the Dusit Thani Hotel, Bangkok on 8-11 January 2018. The full application (located in the Useful Downloads section at the bottom of the page) must be completed and submitted by 15 October 2017.

The research workshop aims to explore alternative perspectives to understanding English based on Global Englishes and English as a lingua franca research and the implications this has for language policy and classroom practices. The workshop will allow established scholars and early career researchers from Thailand and the UK to discuss work in this area and consider more sustainable (economically and socially), locally relevant approaches to language ideology, language policy, and language teaching, with the aim of bringing about long-term changes in Thai education. The workshop will bring together a team (Dr Will Baker, Prof Jennifer Jenkins & Dr Julia Hüttner) with international expertise in English as a lingua franca and English language teaching from the Centre for Global Englishes at the University of Southampton and  a team with a wealth of local expertise from Kasetsart University, Thailand, led by Dr Navaporn Snodin. This is scheduled to take place over 4 days in January 2018 in Bangkok. Further details can be downloaded with the application form at the bottom of this page.
