Dear visitors,


I am writing you to give you a full account on the 2014 NNEST EVO. 


NNEST Interest Section held its second EVO (Electronic Village Online) Session between January 13 - February 16, 2014. Organized in collaboration with the CALL Interest Section, this online event brought together nearly 100 participants from several continents around the world. Our aim was to create a virtual discussion platform designed to utilize multilingual, multicultural, and multinational perspectives to re-examine some of the fundamental assumptions and practices influencing NNESTs (and the NNEST movement) around the world.


As we concluded our session, I would like to thank Aiden Yeh (also the former chair of the NNEST IS) who helped us organize this event and other moderators Kyung-Hee Bae (Chair-elect of the NNEST IS), Katya Nemtchinova (NNEST IS Member-at-large), Liz England, Geeta Aneja, Nathanael Rudolph and Bedrettin Yazan (NNEST IS Newsletter Editor). Without their time and devotion, this would not have been possible. I also feel the necessity to express my gratitude to our Guest Speakers, Yilin Sun and Valerie S. Jakar, who graciously shared their insights and wisdom with our community. Finally, I would like to extend my appreciation to our participants from all around the world. A huge and heartfelt thank you!


I understand that some of us may not have had the chance to follow the discussions and online sessions primarily due to our commitments and scheduling issues. Therefore, I wanted to put together this message to provide you a recap of the event and share some important links with you.
