The Candlin lecture

The Candlin Lecture is dedicated to the memory of Professor Christopher N. Candlin (1940 – 2015) who was the co-founder of the ALAPP Conference and the founding co-editor of the Journal of Applied Linguistics and Professional Practice (JALPP).

The lecture aims to engage with one or many of the conceptual and methodological themes at the interface of applied linguistics and professional discourse studies, with a particular emphasis on research uptake and impact.

The inaugural Candlin Lecture was delivered by Srikant Sarangi at ALAPP 2016, hosted by Copenhagen University.

The Candlin Lecture is now a regular feature in future ALAPP conferences. The written versions of the lectures is published in the Journal of Applied Linguistics and Professional Practice (JALPP).
