CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS TO THE 8th “ENRIQUE ALCARAZ RESEARCH AWARD” (“Premio de Investigación Enrique Alcaraz”)

One of the main aims of the European Association of Languages for Specific Purposes (AELFE) is to foster research and teaching in the field of LSP. The “Enrique Alcaraz Research Award” (“Premio de Investigación Enrique Alcaraz”) aims at supporting and disseminating research focusing on LSP (Languages for Specific Purposes).

With the “Enrique Alcaraz Research Award”, AELFE wants to pay tribute to Dr. Enrique Alcaraz Varó, one of the pioneers in the field of English Studies in Spain, and whose main research interests were in the field of LSP. Throughout his fruitful and widely recognised academic career, Dr. Alcaraz lectured in different national and international universities, and published books on applied linguistics and specialised translation. Prof. Alcaraz contributed to creating the degree of Translation and Interpretation Studies at the University of Alicante, and he was also one of the founding members of the Instituto Interuniversitario de Lenguas Modernas Aplicadas (IULMA – Institute for Applied Languages). Throughout his life, Prof. Alcaraz inspired and stimulated a large number of researchers in the field of LSP.
