English as a Lingua Nordica

English as a Lingua Nordica (ELN) is a seminar series by Nordic Editors and Translators (NEaT), a community of English-language professionals in and beyond the Nordic countries. 

We are happy to announce that in 2024, we will be organizing our first two-day conference under the ELN concept together with trade union Kieliasiantuntijat (Language Experts): English as a Lingua Nordica – Language in a Changing World (#ELN2024)

Turku/Åbo is a bilingual city in southwest Finland, with a direct ferry link to Stockholm, good train connections to Helsinki, and a strong tradition of language and translation studies. The venue, Visitor and Innovation Centre Joki, is located at the heart of the Turku Science Park, between the universities.

We welcome presentation proposals in English that respond to our theme for 2024: Language in a Changing World. A Call for Proposals is now open, more information here.
