BAAHE is the Belgian Association of Anglicists in Higher Education. Since its foundation in 1981, BAAHE has brought together anglicists working in the fields of literature and cultural studies, linguistics and translation studies, and ELT. As stipulated in the statutes, the aims of the association are:
- to bring together all teachers of English in Belgian higher education;
- to promote teaching and research in the field of English studies;
- to publish a journal and/or working documents in that field; and
- to ensure contacts with foreign associations of anglicists.
In order to promote these aims, BAAHE organizes a yearly conference and publishes the international, peer-reviewed journal English Text Construction (ETC), published with John Benjamins.
The topic of the 2020 edition of the annual BAAHE conference will be Digital Humanities in English Language and Literature Studies in Belgium: Current Trends, Future Prospects. The conference is organized by the University of Antwerp, and will take place on the 17th of December 2020. The Call for Papers for this event is open until 15 July 2020.
