The Literature in Language Learning and Teaching Research Network or LiLLT ReN is an official research network of AILA (Association International de Liguistique Apliquée).

Our group currently includes 37 participants from more than 15 different countries. They bring expertise in various areas within LiLLT research to the network. The ReN includes scholars at different stages of their career, ranging from PhD students to highly experienced academics, all of whom will strive to advance LiLLT research and applied linguistics through their individual, different disciplinary and cultural experiences and lenses.

If you are actively involved in researching LiLLT and are interested in joining the network, please contact the two LiLLT ReN organisers, Petra Kirchhoff, Amos Paran and Sandra Stadler-Heer

Our mission

  • Continuing to raise the profile of research into the use of literature in language classrooms within applied linguistics
  • Encouraging dialogue and cooperation between researchers working on the learning of different languages
  • Encouraging dialogue and cooperation between researchers working in this area from multiple perspectives (e.g. students’ learning processes and teachers’ professional knowledge, beliefs and motivation)
