Dear SDAŠ members,
below is the last reminder for ESSE 2014 Kosice Conference seminars and the PhD sessions deadline. There is also a new seminar in the linguistics section, please find below its description.
ESSE 2014 Kosice Conference Reminder: Abstracts of individual papers at SEMINAR SESSIONS, DOCTORAL SESSIONS and abstracts of POSTERS must be sent before 31st MARCH 2014! More information on the Conference website http://www.esse2014kosice.sk/
The new seminar in the linguistics section:
ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE FOR STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS – EXCEPTIONAL ENGLISH FOR EXCEPTIONAL LEARNERS?
Ewa Domagala-Zysk, John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin, Poland, firstname.lastname@example.org
Edit Hegybiro Kontra, Eötvös Loránd University, Hungary, email@example.com
The seminar addresses educators and linguists involved in the recent upsurge of European action research focusing on learners with special educational needs. For many years in the past D/deaf, blind, intellectually challenged or dyslexic students were excluded from learning foreign languages, but contemporary educational and social trends such as normalization, integration or inclusion have changed this situation. The purpose of the seminar is thus to share experiences and bring to the fore a discussion on the following points: 1). Conceptual representations for words in English in individuals with sensory or cognitive challenges; 2. Teaching strategies and class techniques to enhance both motivation and language performance; 3. The role of oral communication and sign languages in EFL classes for the D/deaf; 4). Cooperative practices in primary, secondary and tertiary foreign language education for students with disabilities.
Other extended deadlines:
Confirmation of acceptance of abstracts by seminar convenors and PhD session convenors: 15 April 2014.
Applications for fee waivers: 1 April 2014 – 30 April 2014.
Registration will begin on 1 April 2014.
Early registration: 1 April 2014 – 31 May 2014.

Applications to take part in the Doctoral Sessions at the ESSE Conference must be sent no later than 28 February 2014. Young scholars who are writing their PhD theses in English Studies and are at least in the second year of their studies at the time of ESSE Conference in Košice may apply to make a brief presentation of their work-in-progress at one of three doctoral sessions in the fields of English Language, Literatures in English, and Cultural and Area Studies.
