Dear Colleagues,

The Department of Neophilology and the Department of Pedagogy, Pope John Paul II State School of Higher Education in Biała Podlaska, Poland, would like to invite you to the first international conference entitled:

Literacy skills in educational environments: changing theories and practices

that will be held Biała Podlaska on 22-23 October 2018.

 The co-organizers of the Conference are: The English Language Acquisition and Teaching Department at the Department of English, and the Division of Applied Linguistics at the Institute of German Studies and Applied Linguistics, Maria Curie-Sklodowska University in Lublin.

 The conference aspires to provide a forum for sharing both theoretical and empirical findings in research into the development of literacy skills as well as pedagogic practices related to their implementation at different stages in both monolingual and multilingual settings, with a focus on second/foreign language instruction. Our main aim is to bring together scholars and researchers interested in the exploration and analysis of the issues of teaching/learning reading and writing from a wide range of disciplinary perspectives, including second language acquisition, linguistics, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, educational psychology, pedagogy, or foreign language didactics, to name but a few.

We are pleased to announce that the following scholars have agreed to give plenary talks at our conference: 

Prof. Catherine Wallace (University of London)

Prof. Emilia di Martino (Suor Orsola Benincasa University of Naples)

Dr Linda Saunders (St. Mary’s University, Twickenham London)

Prof. Maria Dakowska (University of Warsaw)

Prof. Grażyna Krasowicz-Kupis (Maria-Curie-Sklodowska University, Lublin)

Dr Marcin Smolik (Polish Examination Board, Warsaw)
