Dear colleague,

We are editing a special issue in Languages on "Current Issues in Linguistic Landscapes” and we invite you to submit a paper sharing your research in the field. The special issue focuses both on the development of methods in documentation, analysis and visualization of linguistic landscapes and theories/results stemming from these methodologies. To date, research on linguistic landscapes has mainly focused on multilingual and multiethnic urban areas. Hence, we particularly welcome contributions that explore the linguistic landscapes of rural or less populated areas. Finally, we welcome theoretical or empirical papers discussing linguistic landscapes in the light of a global, digital, and mobile world.
The themes of this special issue include, but are not restricted, to the following:

- Linguistic landscapes in sparsely populated areas

- Linguistic landscapes in Indigenous areas

- Visualization of linguistic landscapes

- Novel approaches to the study of linguistic landscapes

- Linguistic landscapes in a global, digital, and mobile era
