It was about one and a half years ago that I finally I arrived where I had always wanted to be and do what I had always wanted-- teach students, support small language communities and conduct research on African languages on my doorstep. The University of Cape Town and my new colleagues welcomed my efforts to establish the Centre for African Language Diversity-- CALDi as well as The African Language Archive-- TALA and I was recently appointed the Mellon Research Chair: African Language Diversity this initiative. The main aim of CALDi is to train young African scholars in descriptive linguistics and open up space for research into African languages at UCT with the hopes of countering the dominance of African linguistics outside the continent.

Special Issue 2015: From second language pedagogy to the pedagogy of 'plurilingualism': a possible paradigm shift?
The Canadian Modern Language Review (CMLR) invites manuscripts to be considered for the special issue "From second language pedagogy to the pedagogy of 'plurilingualism': a possible paradigm shift?", to appear in 2015. In this issue we solicit empirical research that considers plurilingualism as distinct from multilingualism. In this sense, plurilingualism may be considered as a paradigm of either continuity or discontinuity with second language pedagogy on the macro level , curricula, as well as on the micro level , receptive, productive and interactive activities. The aim of this issue is to provide research evidence that addresses the different epistemological, pedagogical and/or methodological aspects of a plurilingual stance on language pedagogy. Possible topics include (but are not restricted to): plurilingual and pluricultural competence; the transition from second language to plurilingual competence in the classroom; the promotion of plurilingual competencies during teaching, learning and assessment; translanguaging; and code-meshing. We strongly encourage contributions for the "Focus on the classroom" section, in which research-based approaches to pedagogy and methodology are presented and elaborated. Submissions are welcome in either English or French. All submissions are subject to the usual CMLR peer review process.
