LATEUM: Research and Practice in Multidisciplinary Discourse

Dear colleagues,

We are happy to invite you to the 12th International LATEUM conference Research and Practice in Multidisciplinary Discourse. LATEUM has always sought to bridge the gap between the academia and EFL practitioners by bringing together leading theorists in linguistics and teachers with hands-on experience. LATEUM's 12th International Conference will offer many opportunities for professional contact and development, for blending time-honoured traditions with technology-enhanced language education.

This two-day conference will explore and debate the ways linguistics is linked to professional expertise in different spheres, as well as the ways various discourses interact and interpenetrate. While interdisciplinary stance begins to be seen as essential for linguistics in the 21st century, the discussion will be centred around the methodological approaches to how language extends to shape new contents and how new linguistic competences required to succeed in different professional contexts are formed.

The role of literature and verbal aesthetics in general will be one of the major issues for discussion, featuring the year 2015 as The Year of Literature in the Russian Federation.

Join us in this celebration of EFL teaching and learning!
