Sociolinguistics from the Periphery

By Sari Pietikäinen, FinlandAlexandra Jaffe, Long BeachHelen Kelly-Holmes, and Nikolas Coupland

Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users."


Journal of Language Aggression and Conflict

Call Deadline: 01-Feb-2016

Call Information:
Contributions are invited for a special issue of the Journal of Language Aggression and Conflict that focuses on public debates about migration.

Today's world-wide rise in migration flows has not only resulted in an unprecedented international flurry of debates and negotiations on how to deal with it in terms of economic, social, and military policies but also in a huge increase in racist and xenophobic language use, hate speech and discriminatory discourse as well as in a heightened critical awareness, as could be seen, for instance in the UN Human Rights High Commissioner's criticism of inflammatory media language in 2015. Immigration-focused discourses and the meta-communicative debates about them are the topics of the planned special issue.

We invite abstract proposals for discourse-analytical articles of up to 300 words to be submitted to the guest editor (a.musolff@uea.ac.uk) by 31 January 2016, with view to a publication in 2017, after double-blind peer review. The abstracts should indicate theoretical framework, methods, data and main conclusions. Details of JLAC guidelines can be found at https://beta.benjamins.com/#catalog/journals/jlac
