Call for Papers: Language Matters Annual Special Issue on Language Politics in Africa

The editors of Language Matters: Studies in the Languages of Africa are inviting submissions to the annual special issue, ''Language Politics in Africa.'' The ninth special issue is currently in preparation.

With the special issue, Language Matters provides an international forum for empirical contributions that deal with aspects of language intervention or decision-making (i.e. language policy, language planning, language management), language development, language and power, language and identity, language conflict, language movements, etc. Contributions should clearly focus on language situations on the African continent.

Articles not related to language politics will also be considered for inclusion in the journal's two annual general issues.

Articles should be submitted online: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/rlms
Deadline for submissions: 15 August 2017 but later submissions will be considered for the 2018 issue.
Queries: Theodorus du Plessis, University of the Free State, RSA (dplessltufs.ac.za) or Lawrie Barnes, University of South Africa (barnela47gmail.com)
