New Editor of journal Varieties of English Around the World

John Benjamins Publishing is pleased to announce that Stephanie Hackert
(stephanie.hackertanglistik.uni-muenchen.de) of the Ludwig-Maximilians
University, Munich is now series editor for the book series Varieties of
English Around the World (VEAW) .

Now in its 42nd volume, VEAW is a companion monograph series to the journal
English World-Wide and is devoted to sociolinguistic research, surveys and
annotated text collections. The VEAW series is divided into two parts: a
text series contains carefully selected specimens of Englishes documenting
the coexistence of regional, social, stylistic and diachronic varieties in
a particular region; and a general series which contains outstanding
studies in the field, collections of papers devoted to one region or
written by one scholar, bibliographies and other reference works
