Call for papers: The 4th Annual Conference of Asia ESP & the 9th Chinese National Symposium on ESP

Dear friends and colleagues, 

We are pleased to announce that the 4th Annual Conference of Asia ESP & the 9th Chinese National Symposium on ESP will be held from 17 to 19 August, 2021 in Nanning, Guangxi after the postponement of the original date due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It will be hosted by the School of Foreign Languages of Guangxi University.

In January 2021, the Ministry of Education issued a notice to officially add “interdisciplinary subjects” as the 14th discipline in China. Interdisciplinary disciplines and research have become the direction of new engineering, new medical science, new agricultural science and new liberal arts. ESP, the study of the language of various disciplines in English, will play a more active role in the construction of interdisciplinary disciplines. Thus, it is decided that the theme of this conference is: The Construction of ESP in an Interdisciplinary Context.
