Meeting Description: Following our tenth anniversary conference last year, the Norwegian Forum for English for Academic Purposes leaps into its second decade! We invite you to participate at the 11th NFEAP summer conference, which will take place on Thursday 8 and Friday 9 of June 2017 at Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences (Høgskolen i Oslo og Akershus), Oslo, Norway.

The theme for the 2017 conference is EAP and Positioning. We welcome work that addresses the concept of positioning in relation to EAP theory and practice. This may include, for example, rhetorical and argumentative position, the positioning of a reader, political positions (explicit or covert), the relationship between voice and position, and so forth. But it might also open questions of geographical position, and what EAP could mean in a particular place – a continent, a country, a city, a building, even. Indeed, there is no reason why these broad categories of position should be treated as separate (and if one bridges the gap between two ideas – is this bridge not also a position?). “Positioning”, in other words, can be understood broadly.

Plenary speakers:

- Charles Bazerman, Professor of Education at the University of California, Santa Barbara, US
- Ursula Wingate, Senior Lecturer in Language in Education, Centre for Language, Discourse and Communication, King’s College, London, UK
- Lesley Gourlay, ‎Reader in Education & Technology,Institute of Education, University College, London, UK


The 1700 NOK conference registration fee includes refreshments and lunch for both days of the conference and the conference dinner on Thursday evening.

Please note that the NFEAP is a not-for-profit network and we are not in a position to be able to assist with conference travel or subsistence.
