Borders and Language: International Perspectives
A Thematic Issue of the International Journal of the Sociology of Language.

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
borderlessness 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 abstracts of papers dealing with any topic related to language
and borders. We are particularly interested in works dealing with borders in
Eastern Europe and/or India. Abstracts should be no longer than 300 words.
Please send your abstract to Dr. Glenn Martinez, Issue Editor at
martinezgutpa.edu or glenmtz505aol.com. The deadline for abstract
submissions is October 30, 2010. Authors will be notified if their abstracts
have been accepted no later than December 1, 2010. If the abstract is
accepted, complete manuscripts will be requested by March 1, 2011.
