Event details

Last month, Routledge published the first ever Handbook of English as a Lingua Franca. For our first research CGE seminar of this new year, we therefore decided that it would be appropriate to focus on the Handbook and its historic place in the development of ELF research.

Jennifer Jenkins's brief introduction will consider why such a Handbook was needed at this time in ELF’s trajectory and discuss the Handbook’s development. The three co-editors, Will Baker, Martin Dewey, and Jennifer Jenkins, will then each say a few words about their own Handbook chapter (respectively, ‘ELF and Intercultural Communication’, ‘ELF and Teacher Education’, and ‘The Future of ELF?’). This will be followed by a reception during which wine, soft drinks and nibbles will be served, and a copy of the Routledge Handbook of ELF will be raffled. For the purposes of the raffle, each member of the audience will be issued with a raffle ticket on arrival at the seminar.

All welcome. Looking forward to seeing you!
