SLATSA is organized and directed by students for students and represents the group’s interests to the SLAT Executive Council. Among its various functions and activities, SLATSA elects two student representatives to serve for one year on the SLAT Executive Council. This election takes place each spring for the coming academic year. SLATSA also elects or appoints student representatives (for maximally two-year terms) to the various SLAT curriculum sub-committees, as requested by the Executive Council and it elects or appoints a student to serve on the university’s Graduate Interdisciplinary Program Committee; it elects or appoints one or more students to serve as coordinator(s) for the SLAT spring colloquium series during the academic year in question; it elects or appoints one or more individuals to serve as hosts or buddies for new students; and it elects or appoints students to serve as managing editor(s) and editors for the specialty areas for the SLAT Program’s occasional publication series, entitled Arizona Working Papers in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching (SLAT).

Information about upcoming SLATSA events is communicated through university email.
In addition, SLATSA maintains a Facebook page with regular updates about social events and provides a forum for SLATSA members to communicate with each other online.  Students can join the page by contacting a member of the SLATSA officers.

Statement of Purpose

The Arizona Working Papers in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching is a publication of the University of Arizona Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching (SLAT). The Working Papers were conceived as a source for scholarly dialogue among SLAT students, SLAT faculty and the second language research community at large. They are intended as an opportunity for doctoral students in the field of second language studies to experience the publishing process as well as an outlet for established second language researchers to present work in progress.

Who may submit?

The Arizona Working Papers invites students, faculty, and scholars at any stage of their academic career who are working in Second Language Acquisition or related fields to submit original manuscripts for consideration for publication in the Arizona Working Papers in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching. Papers may be empirical research studies (i.e. work with human subjects, corpus data, or textual analysis) or more theoretical in nature, and should focus on issues related to second language acquisition and teaching.
