In many ways, language education is an endeavour to cross borders. In the most obvious sense, it involves crossing the borders separating linguistic communities. In a different sense, it involves crossing the borders between the various disciplines that inform the profession. It also involves crossing the practitioner – theoretical divide. This conference aims to bring together language teachers, researchers and scholars to discuss the various boundaries that they cross regularly in the contexts of their work, and to reflect on their permeability. Academic Programme: We are pleased to announce that plenary presentations will be delivered by: - Michael Hoey - Claire Kramsch - Amos Paran - Barbara Seidlhofer - Janez Skela - Penny Ur
