July 2019: Nick Ellis – Understanding Language and Learning: Theoretical, Methodological, and Cultural Developments in Applied Linguistics

(In association with West Tokyo and Tokyo Chapters)

Date: July 19th, 2019
Time: 18:30 to 20:00
RSVP: RSVP
Location: Ikebukuro – Rikkyo University
Abstract:I reflect on the concepts of ‘learning’, ‘language’, and ‘cognition’ and how they have changed over the history of Applied Linguistics, on our ever-expanding deployment of sophisticated methodologies, and on the fast-changing landscape of sharing, appraising, and publishing our science. I consider the implications for the nature of our field and our research practices, for publishing and the changing nature of knowledge dissemination, for the valuing of knowledge and scholarship, and for graduate training and mentoring.
