Annual Graham Davies lecture

John Gillespie
Professor (Emeritus), University of Ulster

John H. Gillespie is Professor of French Language and Literature at Ulster University (Emeritus). His main research interests in CALL have included translation software, computer-based language-learning environments, multimedia laboratories and staff and student motivation for the use of CALL. Recently he has concentrated on the history and research strategy of CALL, linked to his interest in intellectual history, especially  the interaction of literature, philosophy, theology and religious belief in contemporary (French) culture: he is a specialist in French existentialism, especially Jean-Paul Sartre (he is an Editor of Sartre Studies International) and Albert Camus.  He is keen to see CALL and language education in general take account of its cultural context.  John is a founder member of EUROCALL, and has been a member of the Executive committee since 2006 and Treasurer since 2010.
