Dear Colleagues, It is a great pleasure for me to invite you to the 21st Conference of the International Association for World Englishes (IAWE 2015) to be held in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 8-10, 2015. We are excited about welcoming you to our country and we look forward to providing an open environment for catching up on current developments in the field, focusing on the conference theme, ‘World Englishes: Bridging Cultures and Contexts. We are confident you will benefit from the stimulating academic programme of the Congress and we hope you will also find time to experience our culture by enjoying the social programme we will arrange for you. Istanbul, a beautiful modern city with a rich historical and cultural heritage, will add a special flavor to the event and will provide an exciting atmosphere both for renewing your knowledge of various World Englishes topics and projects, and for forging new friendships. The Conference venue, Boğaziçi University, is an English-medium state university in Istanbul. Founded in 1863 as Robert College, it was the first overseas American college in the Eurasian Region. In 1971, it became Boğaziçi University.  The Congress will be held on the south campus of the University. Transportation to and from the airport and the city center is convenient. This year’s program includes lectures by the following invited speakers as well as over 100 concurrent presentations.
