and, as usual, combines three perspectives:

  • Chemnitz students present their BA and MA projects to a wider audience,
  • international scholars present their experience through special funding from Alexander-von-Humboldt and DAAD - this year young scholars from Western Balkans through our project Truths -, and
  • international ERASMUS partners add their own specific approaches to widen the perspective

Together we would like to show that empirical studies in language variation are a fascinating topic when they emphasize cultural dimensions of (Digital) English around the world. We try to combine socio-, corpus- and cognitive-linguistic perspectives and stress multiple methodological approaches to current research and applications, especially in English language teaching and academic writing.
