Current Issues in Language Planning

Call Information:
Language planning as a complex practice
Editor for this issue: Gabrielle Hogan-Brun
G.Hogan-Brun@bristol.ac.uk

This issue looks into the complex nature of language policy and planning activities. LPP processes involve differing components that intersect across a network of connections. The relationship between cause and effect that occurs in such dynamic settings is both nonlinear and multidirectional. Hence language and social phenomena that are produced are often unpredictable. In this way small changes can have large effects and vice versa.

The complex nature of policy and planning practices manifests itself in local contexts where actors are faced with different agendas, ideologies and trajectories. The dynamics revolve around questions of agency, means and players: Who does what to whom? Why, when and how? Who has the right to do what for whom?

We welcome theoretical and empirical studies on the complex architecture of activities in the area of acquisition planning in multilingual contexts that are concerned with (but not limited to):
•
- Language in education
•- Education expectations and labour market practices
•- Citizenship and socio-political participation
•- Ideology-driven aspects of public legitimization and institutionalisation
•- The intersection of practices at the macro or micro levels of society.

Deadline for receipt of abstracts: 30 January 2013
