Theme: English Changing: Implications for policy, teaching, and research
Educators today face the challenge of teaching learners who need different
Englishes for diverse purposes all while English and its uses are themselves
also changing. These changes raise new questions for policy, teaching, and
research. How should governments and educational systems respond? In what
ways should classrooms change? What kinds of research are needed given these
new realities? The 14th ESEA conference aims to provide a venue for the
discussion of these issues from a variety of perspectives and for stimulating
new work in these areas.

Theme: Englishes and Literatures-in-English in a Globalised World

This has led, in turn, to the development and spread of varieties of English Language and Literatures-in-English around the world. The conference explored issues pertaining generally to the problems and possibilities of living in a globalised world.
