ACCENTS is an annual conference organized by the Department of English Language and Applied Linguistics at the University of Łódź, Poland. It brings together researchers and teachers interested in native and non-native accents of English, approached from a variety of theoretical and/or practical perspectives. The key issues discussed each year include individual accent characteristics, the dynamism of accent usage, accent teaching and learning, the methods and tools for accent studies. ACCENTS 2016 aim to continue the discussion of the main themes of variability and function of accents, focusing on 'accents in context'.
We invite proposals for papers, workshops and posters related to the main theme 'accents in conext' and exploring the relationship between pronunciation research and pronunciation teaching as well as other issues related to native and non-native accents of English, including, but not limited to the ones mentioned below:

    Accents in context (social, ethnic, geographical, political, historical etc.)
    Native / non-native accent perspective in theory and practice
    Variability in accents: description, explanation and predictions
    Tools for accent/pronunciation studies
    Pronunciation teaching and learning

Please notice that each author can propose two contributions provided that one of them is co-authored. Papers are given 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes for discussion, workshops will typically have 45 minute slots. Please specify the intended presentation format in your proposal.
