***Conference Theme: "Surviving and Thriving in Times of Change"

Conference Sub-Theme: World Englishes in the MENA Region

This unique international conference, organised in affiliation with IAFOR Global Partners offers a unique location from which to consider a number of issues and trends in education. These include the different global Englishes, language distances and access, frictions between the preservation and challenging of traditional and cultures, languages and wisdoms, and how local societies are becoming the melting pots of different cultures, backgrounds and spoken Englishes. The population of the UAE, as well as those of the Arabian Gulf countries, is multicultural and rich in the difference one would expect from its geographical location at the heart of the Middle East. The region has been undergoing continuous development in academia, economics, trading and is growing as a recognizable and influential world power.

We hope and expect the 2018 conference in Dubai will bring together educators from around the MENA region specifically and the world generally to exchange ideas, research and practice from their own backgrounds and contexts, and draw on, and be inspired by, the local and international body of delegates from a multitude of different national and international backgrounds.
