Call for papers

It is our pleasure to announce the 5th International Conference “Approaches to Phonology and Phonetics” (APAP) to be he held in Lublin (June 25-27, 2021). APAP is a biennial event organized by two Polish universities: Maria Curie-Skłodowska University (UMCS) and John Paul II Catholic University (KUL) which intends to provide a forum for sharing theoretical, empirical and pedagogical findings on all aspects of phonetics and phonology, with particular attention paid to how the two domains of research relate to each other. This year’s conference leading theme is:

“Phonetics and phonology. Together or apart?”

We invite proposals for papers and special sessions concerning the main theme as well as other phonetic and phonological issues. A special section is going to be dedicated to “Researching and teaching second language pronunciation.”


Keynote speakers:

Haike Jacobs (Radboud University, Nijmegen)

Tobias Scheer (University of Nice)

Geoffrey Schwartz (Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań)


We hope that APAP 2021 will take place in the traditional form. Should the COVID-19 pandemic interfere with this plan, an online version of APAP will be arranged (with no fees).

The deadline for abstract submission is March, 31st, 2021.

The conference fee for Polish participants is 400 PLN and for foreign guests 100 euros.

Abstracts should be emailed to apaplublin2021@gmail.com
