SLRF: Expanding Networks at Vanderbilt University October 23-25, 2020


Expanding Networks: Theory, Research, and Practice in Second Language Development is the theme of SLRF 2020, which will be held October 23-25 at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. In line with previous SLRF events, we seek to bring together— and thereby strengthen the overarching “network” among— diverse bodies of second language researchers and research, across theory-, research-, and practice-driven inquiries in the field. This theme captures the interrelated and multidimensional nature of second language research, in which scholars consider various “networks” underlying second language learning and development.
