Borders and Language: International Perspectives

As globalization continues to impact ways of knowing, ways of being, and ways
of speaking around the world, the contribution of border-oriented scholarship will
move from the margins of social and humanistic inquiry to the center of
disciplinary inquiry and engagement (cf. Mignolo 2000). Border-oriented
sociolinguistics is no exception in this impending conceptual shift. Following
Omoniyi, border sociolinguistics has been characterized as a study of language
in society that foregrounds spatial adjacency between two or more polities and
that highlights the communicative dynamics of the populations that inhabit these
polities. Border sociolinguistics may thus be characterized as an intentional
transcendence of bounded speech communities and a heightened awareness of
the effects of boundaries and bordelessness on language practices and
language ideologies. The purpose of this thematic issue of The International
Journal of the Sociology of Language is to highlight the salient role of border
sociolinguistic research in the understanding of the impact of globalization on
the languages and communicative practices of the world.

We are seeking 300 word abstracts on any aspect of languages in border
regions throughout the world. We are particularly interested in studies that focus
on borders in Eastern Europe or India.
