Call Information:
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.
