The 17th Symposium on Second Language Writing

This year’s theme is “Multilingualism and Second Language Writing.” In recent years, what have been dubbed “multi/pluri” (Kubota, 2016) approaches to language and writing have proliferated in applied linguistics, composition, second language writing, and other relevant fields concerned with language and literacy. Terms such as multilingual, plurlingual, translingual, translanguaging, and polylanguaging, among others, have been used to describe learners, writers, language practices, writing processes, texts, and social contexts.
