We are pleased to announce the call for abstracts for the 2nd Annual ELT and Applied Linguistics Conference 2019. This year’s theme is Policies, Practices and Possibilities in ELT and Applied Linguistics. This theme highlights the intersectionality of policies, pedagogical practices and indefinite possibilities of change that teachers and communities are able to make in the lives of students, teachers and broader communities. Considering policy not just a ‘text’ but a practiced-phenomenon of teachers, students, communities (including communities of professionals and researchers) and institutions, this conference invites the abstracts from the researchers, teachers, students, applied linguists and policymakers to discuss the gap, tension, and (dis)connection between policies and practices in language education. The conference focuses on how communities, researchers, teachers, applied linguists and students can negotiate power and construct agency to transform policies and practices. In other words, the abstracts should focus on: what policies, explicit and implicit, regarding language education exist? what are the on-the-ground practices? what are the possibilities of change? what are the processes of change? To address these questions, we specify the following list of topics to help the potential presenters to develop their abstracts
