English Scholars Beyond Borders is a non-profit circle of international academics. The aim of ESBB conferences is to assemble English teachers and scholars from across the globe to expand metaphorical and epistemological horizons. While the conference theme is English Beyond Borders, our intention is always to embrace diversity and to support teachers grappling with local EFL issues.

Registration fees are payable to the local organizer after acceptance of the proposal. Fees are $200 for presenters, $50 for student presenters based in Thailand and for attending without presenting.
