PLENARY SPEAKER
Prof. Dr. Kurt Kohn‘s research interests focus on theoretical, empirical and pedagogic issues of second language learning and teaching, English as a lingua franca communication, discourse comprehension, translation and interpreting, and intercultural communicative competence.  In his overall approach, he takes a communicative and social constructivist perspective with an emphasis on case studies and introspective methods.  Since the early 1990s, he has been involved in European projects on computer-enhanced language learning and teaching, with a special focus on free content authoring, learner and teacher autonomy, authentication, and blended language learning.  He is co-developer (with Petra Hoffstaedter) of the language learning and authoring software Telos Language Partner and has co-authored a large number of multimedia and web-based language learning packages mainly for English, French and German.  His more recent European research activities concern the development of pedagogically designed language corpora for content and language integrated learning as well as the use of web collaboration tools for language learning and intercultural communication.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER
Nabil Matar’s research and teaching are in the areas of English seventeenth-century religious literature, British-Islamic relations, and Arabic writings on Europe in the early modern period. He started his career by teaching at the University of Jordan (1975-77) and at the American University of Beirut (1978-86). In 1977-78, he received a British Council grant to Clare Hall, Cambridge, and in 1982, a Fulbright grant to Harvard Divinity School. In 1986, he moved to Florida Institute of Technology where he became Professor of English in 1988 and Head of the Department of Humanities and Communication between 1997 and 2007. In Fall 2007, he began his tenure as Professor of English at the University of Minnesota.
