Sociolinguists Outside Academia
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I've already sent this query to some discipline-specific email lists, and
had a good number of responses, but none positive.
What I was asking is about people doing sociolinguistic research who,
for one reason or another, are not employed within academic
institutions. This could include people who have finished their PhD but
not yet found academic employment (like me!), or people who engage
in paid sociolinguistic research but not through an academic institution
(for example Pamela McKensie's excellent work on mother tongue
based education in India and Bangladesh, for the International Network
I'm interested to know about any groups specifically for sociolinguists in
this sort of position. An example of such a group in another discipline is
the British Sociological Association's ''Sociologists Outside Academia''
study group: http://www.britsoc.co.uk/specialisms/SOA.htm. Is anyone
out there aware of any organisations or associations (or groups within
those) dedicated to bringing together sociolinguists outside academia?
