Following on from AFLA's (the French Association of Applied Linguistics) two 
previous conferences: CRELA 2013 (Research Cultures in Applied Linguistics) & 
TRELA (Research fields in Applied Linguistics), the PRELA conference 
(Professionals and Research in Applied Linguistics) aims to question the 
methodological challenges, social implications and perspectives for action in 
the field of Applied Linguistics. The conference will address a variety of 
situations and questions, such as: Can studies in applied linguistics 
contribute to more inclusive education to better respond to the diversity of 
learners?What can applied linguistics bring to the understanding of technology 
mediated interactions? How can research in applied linguistics contribute to 
improving ergonomics and communication in the workplace (in hospital, 
aviation, police settings, etc.)? 


Call for Papers: 

Condamines & Narcy-Combes (2015) have recently suggested replacing the term 
«applied linguistics» by «situated linguistics» following Brumfit’s (1977) 
work on situated sciences. Brumfit argued that the aim was not simply to apply 
research to a project but rather to engage in a process in which research and 
social projects are interconnected and mutually transform one another.

PRELA 2019 is organised around three strands: 

Strand 1 – Methodological challenges: Situated research, particularly when 
conducted in sensitive fields, leads to the emergence of methodological 
challenges which incite researchers to consider ethical questions (access to 
research fields, explaining research topics, etc.) and questions linked to the 
timescale of research in the face of societal transformations. 

Strand 2 – Social implications: In the current context, where mobility and 
exchanges between individuals characterise daily life (personal, 
professional), socio-cultural and intergenerational diversity pose a real 
challenge to our societies which tend towards greater social inclusion. 

Strand 3 – Perspectives for action: In view of these challenges and concerns, 
researchers in applied linguistics offer opportunities for action: through 
valorising and popularising research; going back to the research field; 
offering research support and training but also training through research; and 
taking on political responsibilities.
