    Author of the Month: Kees de Bot

    Kees de Bot, author of the ambitious A History of Applied Linguistics, is April's Author of the Month! Professor de Bot is Chair of Applied Linguistics and head of the department at the University of Groningen, Netherlands. His latest work, A History of Applied Linguistics, adresses the development and definition of Applied Linguistics since 1980. The structure of this book is largely defined by the topics covered in interviews with 40 leading international figures and is supplemented with questionnaires from a further 50 key applied linguists.

    In a new interview, Professor de Bot gives us a detailed look into the writing process, including where the idea for his book came from, his method of choosing which applied linguists to include, and how his definition of Applied Linguistics has evolved over time.
