New Editors for English Text Construction

John Benjamins Publishing is pleased to announce that there will be two new
co-editors at the journal English Text Construction beginning with Volume 4
in 2011.

The new editors are Gaƫtanelle Gilquin (University of Louvain) and David
Pascoe (University of Utrecht). They will join current co-editor Lieven
Vandelanotte (University of Namur.

Keith Carlon (University of Louvain) will also remain as Managing Editor.

English Text Construction is an internationally refereed journal of English
Linguistics, Applied Linguistics and Literary Studies focusing on the
communicating subject and the text constructing this intersubjective
communication. The journal offers a forum for currently converging
tendencies that place the text-constructing subject in centre stage. This
general common denominator subsumes fundamental movements in the three
disciplines of English studies, viz. literary studies, linguistics and
applied linguistics. In literary studies narratological perspectives remain
of abiding interest, as well as study of the psychologically and
ideologically fragmented subject as it reveals itself in literary texts.
The study of literature is currently also witnessing renewed interest in
the gendered and sociopolitically situated subject and its moral
responsibilities. In linguistics, the communicating subject is central to
functional, cognitive and pragmatic approaches. Functional linguistics
investigates how language is used to communicate about the world and to
negotiate the social and discourse roles. Cognitive linguistics studies
language usage as it constructs the perspectivized meanings of the
conceptualizing subject. Pragmatic approaches focus on the whole message,
both the linguistically predicated and the contextually implied one,
exchanged between the interlocutors. In Applied linguistics, the subject
also plays a central role. Applied linguistic interest in text and the
construal of subjectivity is reflected, among others, in genre-oriented
approaches to text, and in discourse-oriented and corpus-based analyses as
the basis for various ELT applications. For instance, considerable
attention has been devoted to issues such as stance in (research) writing
and presentations, and to subjectivity in translation studies. Similarly,
in language teaching methodology increased attention is given to individual
learners and learning styles.

This journal is peer reviewed and indexed in: Linguistics and Language
Behavior Abstracts (LLBA)

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Ling & Literature; Text/Corpus Linguistics
