Translingual Pedagogies
Special Issue of the EuroAmerican Journal of Applied Linguistics and Languages
Guest Editors: Josh Prada and Tarja Nikula-Jäntti
Over the last years, we have witnessed a series of shifts that have laid out the foundations for a multilingual turn in language teaching/learning. This “focus on multilingualism” centralizes the bi-/multilingual speaker, her repertoires and practices, her biographical dimensions, and her learning processes, as well as the interactions and social dimensions that emerge in multilingual settings. In doing so, researchers and practitioners normalize multilingualism and the sociolinguistic phenomena that emerge in multilingual situations. At the core of this shift is the notion of translanguaging, which refers to the flexible practices engaged by multilingual speakers in multilingual situations, treating language as an emergent, situated process. A translanguaging perspective asks us to question assumptions about normative language use and monolingually-informed stances on linguistic standards.
This special issue of the EuroAmerican Journal of Applied Linguistics and Languages seeks to expand our current understanding of how translingual practice and pedagogies can be articulated and mobilized in a variety of classroom settings, and the effects of specific forms of translingual pedagogy on different student populations. We welcome manuscript submissions investigating, among others, topics pertaining to:
- Register and style
- Writing and reading
- Pragmatics and semantics
- Critical pedagogies
- Classroom discourse practices
- Content and language integrated learning
- Study abroad contexts
- Applications to online/hybrid environments
- Refugees and majority language education
- Urban education
- Heritage/community language education
- Teacher/instructor discourse and its effects on learning outcomes
As a multilingual venue, the Euro-American Journal of Applied Linguistics and Languages welcomes submissions in any of its three working languages (English, Italian, and Spanish) as well as manuscripts that purposefully push the boundaries of monolingual academic writing through written translanguaging.
Deadline for Manuscripts: May 1, 2018
