Languages and Multilinguism in Pandemic Times

Eds. Cristine Görski Severo (UFSC), Ezra Nhampoca (UEM-Moçambique) and Silvana Aguiar dos Santos (UFSC, UFC)
Proposals that address the sociolinguistic dynamics and language policies and planning involving languages in the context of Covid-19 pandemic are welcome. This special issue seeks to explore and discuss how the right of different discursive/speech communities or/and individuals to information, as well as to access to public services, was effectively made possible in face of a need for care and life protection policies. We accept papers that illustrate the creative and agentive language practices of different individuals or/and communities in the construction of policies of protection, sharing and care. The following themes will be addressed: access, social justice, translation, vulnerabilities and construction of language care policies.

Submission from 12/20/2020 until 02/28/2021
