VALS-ASLA, the Swiss Association for Applied Linguistics, is a forum for the exchange of knowledge and information in the field of Applied Linguistics, an interdisciplinary field of linguistics in which language-related challenges and real-life problems are examined and results are applied in both practice and theory development.

The theme of the 2024 conference in Bern is Asymmetries and Inequalities in Language. With this theme, the organisers seek to highlight the ways in which language and language issues reflect and reproduce social divisions, but also how linguistic analyses can help to uncover and sometimes even redress inequalities in society. The aim is to showcase research on language and social issues from a wide range of theoretical, methodological and geopolitical perspectives, and to encourage discussions on the role that asymmetries and inequalities play in applied linguistic research.

The invited plenary speakers for the 2024 conference are:

  • Claudia Bianchi (Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele)
  • Maria Candea (Université Sorbonne Nouvelle)
  • Claire Kramsch (UC Berkeley)
  • Harshana Rambukwella (NYU Abu Dhabi)

Further information can be found on the conference website of VALS-ASLA 2024 and you can download the flyer here for further distribution: VALS-ASLA 2024.
