APLNG Roundtable


Applied Linguistics juxtaposes different traditions of intellectual thought and applied linguistic practices. Our departmental roundtable sessions reflect these complex backgrounds. Throughout the semester, presenters will speak about a wide range of topics and introduce us to various  methodologies and approaches to analyze data. Faculty and students will report about their ongoing or completed research and afford us with many opportunities to engage in dialogue across different intellectual frameworks.

The sessions are held Fridays from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Session information is posted in the News and Events section of this website.
