Second Language Research Forum 2008

With the theme, Exploring SLA: Perspectives, Positions, and Practices, SLRF returns to UH Mānoa for the third time.v This year, we investigate various professional interests and practices of the field of Second Language Aquisition. The overall purpose of SLRF 2008 is to integrate an array of ideas about SLA research, ethics, and practice, through balancing alternative approaches to SLA with traditional ones. We solicit colloquia, papers, and posters that consider SLA from a range of theoretical, methodological, linguistic, practical, political, and disciplinary perspectives. We encourage submissions that deepen and broaden our understandings and assumptions surrounding SLA research.
