22nd International Conference: IAWE 

Local and Global Contexts of World Englishes 
(June 30-July 2, 2017)

We would like to welcome you the 22nd IAWE Conference, held at Syracuse University.  SU is a fitting location given the topic of the conference:  the conference will feature lectures and workshops on a broad, interdisciplinary array of topics, including the sub-themes Information Studies, Computer and Electrical Engineering, Linguistic and Cognitive Sciences to International Business, English, Composition and Rhetoric, Media, Global Affairs and Policy Studies.  SU is fortunate to have a diverse and vibrant community of students and faculty, with over 20% of its student body being international, and we are excited to host such a globally-focused event.  We look forward to seeing you here in Syracuse, NY!

Learn more about the conference venue.

A special attraction of the Syracuse conference will be that it will feature a symposium in memory of the founder and dominant scholar of the field of World Englishes, Professor Braj B. Kachru, who passed away in July 2016. 

Syracuse University would like to acknowledge with respect the Onondaga Nation, the indigenous people on whose ancestral lands we now stand.



Save the date! IAWE 2017 will be held at Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY, USA, from June 30 - July 2, 2017. The theme is “The local and global contexts of world Englishes”.




The city of Syracuse has a variety of attractions and restaurants to fit any taste. In the heart of the city or out towards the Finger Lakes, there are plenty of things to offer to provide a fun and unique experience during your visit.
