We welcome state-of-the-art contributions that approach these topics from different scholarly perspectives.
Prospective contributors may consider the following macro-topics:
1. The relationship between language and ideologies, where “ideology” is intended as a system of beliefs, theories, and values, and a way of perceiving the world and reality, e.g., the influence of linguistic, political, and social ideologies on language, both in shaping meanings and in terms of vision and expectations of its users, learners, and teachers.

2. How different ideological approaches (political, sociological, religious, pragmatic, and so forth) determine the contents, methodology and practice of language teaching, with regards to the choice of the variant(s), linguistic structures, vocabulary, textual typologies, curricula, syllabi, materials, and evaluation methods.
