Call for Papers:

Journal of Second Language Writing is soliciting submissions for a special issue entitled ''Critical Language Awareness: A Lens for Looking Backward, Outward, and Forward in L2 Writing.''

Full call for papers available at
This special issue will provide an opportunity to consider questions such as:
- What are the benefits and challenges of taking up CLA as a central framework for the teaching of L2 writing? How does this framework play out in curriculum design, classroom instruction, assessment, and other aspects of pedagogy?
- How does CLA intersect with or diverge from other asset-oriented frameworks
(e.g., translingual orientations, plurilingual pedagogies, and linguistic justice)?
- How can CLA inform our research, administration, and/or advocacy work?
- How might CLA help L2 writing specialists connect to and converse with scholars in other disciplines and contexts?

Please send a 500-word abstract that describes unpublished empirical, analytical, and/or reflective work that explores the questions above. If abstracts are accepted, we will invite authors to submit full-length articles for possible inclusion in this issue. Complete manuscripts will be sent out to peer reviewers prior to acceptance in the special issue.

Expected timeline:
- Abstracts (500 words) should be submitted by March 1, 2022 via email to the guest editors.
- Authors invited to submit full-length articles will be notified by April 1, 2022.
- Complete manuscripts should be submitted by September 1, 2022.
