About NORDPAL

Under its vision “pooling resources across borders”, the Nordic Network of Doctoral and Postdoctoral Researchers in Applied Linguistics (NORDPAL)  provides annual opportunities for junior Applied Linguistics researchers across the Nordic countries to meet and discuss their research in a supportive environment, with input and feedback from a network of senior internationally acclaimed scholars.

A key feature of our courses is to afford generous space for participants to present their ongoing research which receives critical and constructive feedback from lecturers and fellow participants. It is notable that participants sustain this level of engagement in each other’s work and in Applied Linguistics more generally beyond the annual event. In this sense, NORDPAL is committed to facilitating capacity building in the Nordic region in the field of Applied Linguistics.

NORDPAL coordinators are professors Lars Sigfred Evensen (NTNU), Tarja Nikula (Jyväskylä) and Srikant Sarangi (Aalborg).
