The Chair of Semantics and Linguistic Semiotics, Institute of English
Studies, University of Łódź, Poland calls for chapters for the volume
‘Identity through a language lens’
Linguistic research on identity has become increasingly central within
sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, discourse analysis, and social
psychology but the concomitant development of linguistic approaches to
identity has been neglected. By applying a variety of analytical tools and
concepts, the contributors will hopefully show how people construct images
of themselves through language, how they shape, perform, and re-shape their
personal identities within and across local and dominant discourses, and
finally how language resources are selected and used to perform desirable
versions of identities.
Although other topics may be considered, we welcome papers dealing with,
but not being limited to, issues such as the following:
- Theorizing identity construction and identification processes from a
variety of perspectives
- Language and personal identity
- Discourse and identity
- Identity and cognition
- Identity and selfhood
- Identity at the crossroads with its disciplinary neighbours
Papers of around 4000 words in English should be submitted by December 15,
2010. They should be sent to the editor: Kamila Ciepiela (kciepielawp.pl).
All papers will be reviewed by an independent reviewer. The authors will be
notified of the acceptance or rejection of the paper by January 31, 2011.
Papers may be in Word or RTF formats with the following information and in
this order: a) author(s), b) affiliation, c) email address, d) title of the
paper, e) body of paper.
Your articles must meet the following formatting criteria:
- The article should be divided into sections and sub-sections. It should
contain an introduction and a conclusion. A final section of the paper
should be entitled keywords and it should contain up to ten of these.
- Use 1.5 spacing in the whole article. No additional spacing should be
used between paragraphs.
- The text must be justified (CTRL + J).
- The first line of each paragraph must be indented by 1 cm; indentation,
however, must not be used in paragraphs opening a new section and
- Font 12 Times New Roman must be used in the whole text of the article
including bibliography (except for the title).
- Font 10 Times New Roman must be used in longer quotations and footnotes.
Quotations must also be indented by 1 cm on the left, preceded and followed
by a single line spacing.
- In the top, left-hand corner your name, surname, and affiliation should
- The title must be written in boldface and centered (CTRL + E). Use font
14 Times New Roman for it.
- Please include drawings and pictures in a separate attachment to the e-mail.
- Footnotes must be placed at the bottom of each page and numbered.
- Please use page numbers in the top right-hand corner.
- Bold-face should be used only in the title; important information in the
article should be italicized.
- Tables and diagrams as well as examples must be numbered.
- Use the word bibliography for the list of quoted sources; include only
the sources referred to in the article.
Citation of Sources
All direct or indirect reference to others' work should be made in the form
of in-text parenthetical citations.
Any quotation, paraphrase or summary should be cited within parentheses,
indicating the name of the author, the year of publication and the relevant
page, e.g. Chomsky (1957: 75), or, in case of books with two authors,
(Chomsky/Halle 1968: 35–43). If the book has more than two authors, only
the first author's name should be given, followed by et al. (e.g. Quirk et
al.). Et al. should be italicized. Page numbers should always be specified
in full form, e.g. 240–241, not 240–1 or 240f.
For citations referring to multi-volume sources, indicate the volume, e.g.
(1968, 1: 56).
If more than one work by the same author(s) are cited, specify the year of
publication for each work, e.g. (Johnson 1935, 1990).
Longer quotations (5-10 lines) should be given without quotation marks,
separated from the preceding and following text by a single line, and
indented on both sides by 10 character spaces.
We acknowledge receipt and reply to all papers submitted. If you do not
receive a reply from us in a week you should assume we did not receive your
proposal; it might be lost in cyberspace!
