2017 is the 50th anniversary of the first annual meeting of BAAL. The theme of the conference – Diversity and Applied Linguistics – will enable us to engage with the notion of diversity both of and in Applied Linguistics, in a diversifying world, in this anniversary year. What opportunities are enabled? What challenges are presented? What are the key questions for the field, as we take stock and look forward?
