Call For Papers

Dear Researchers,

We are happy to announce that the 4th International Conference on Research in Applied Linguistics- ULEAD ICRAL 2020, hosted by Bursa Uludağ University, will be held fully online on October 24-26, 2020 

ICRAL  takes as its premise that applied linguistics underpins a vast range of disciplines, and we intend the 2020 meeting to encourage exploration of the role that applied linguistics plays in many walks of life. We hope the conference theme will encourage proposals from a wide range of disciplines and that this in turn will encourage cross-disciplinary dissemination of ideas and research.
