BAAL works with publishers to fund a series of seminars and workshops. Currently we facilitate:

  • Three seminars jointly funded with Cambridge University Press. For details of how to organise a seminar, go to the seminars page.
  • One workshop jointly funded with Routledge. For details of how to organise a workshop, please go to the workshop page.

If you are interested in sponsoring a seminar or workshop or other presentation series, please contact the current Seminars Coordinator on the BAAL Executive Committee.
