Australian Systemic Functional Linguistics Association (ASFLA) Conference 2021

The Australian Systemic Functional Linguistics Association (ASFLA) Conference is an annual event which brings together SFL scholars around Australia.  The conference welcomes contributions that use any aspect of Systemic Functional Linguistics (e.g., Appraisal Theory) and Legitimation Code Theory.

Following a hiatus in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ASFLA2021 will take place onsite at The University of Queensland, from Wednesday 29 September to Friday 1 October, with a pre-conference institute on Tuesday 28 September.

The theme of ASFLA2021 is Impact: Research, Education, Industry. With this theme, we aim to highlight the real-world implications and applications of linguistic research.

We look forward to welcoming you to beautiful Brisbane in September.
