General outline

The French edition of the AILA 2023 congress will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of AILA congress but also the 60th anniversary of AFLA. This will be the opportunity to emphasize that applied linguistics has been interested in real-world problems, from the outset. Reacting to pre- and post-COVID global issues, this congress will be organized around the theme « Diversity and social cohesion in a globalized world: towards more committed language sciences ». The overall goal will be to reflect on how studies in applied linguistics and the researchers who produce them can participate in the construction of a globalized world in which respect for diversity as a basis for social cohesion requires individual and collective commitment. The event is hybrid with online only, in-person only and hybrid sessions.
