Event Details

"Ecolinguistics: Voices from the Global South" will provide a unique viewpoint on how language and ecology meet in the Global South. This book will be a vital resource for anyone interested in the connections between applied linguistics and the natural environment, from questions of decolonization and the promotion of Southern epistemologies to the practical applications of ecolinguistic research. We are soliciting chapters whose themes may include (but are not limited to): language policy and planning in the Anthropocene, applied linguistics and globalization, Southern epistemologies, ecolinguistic discourse analysis, language and environmental justice, multilingualism and language maintenance, and the linguistics of biocultural diversity conservation. We are particularly interested in promoting Indigenous voices in ecolinguistics.
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before August 30, 2023, a chapter proposal of 1,000 to 2,000 words clearly explaining the mission and concerns of the proposed chapter. Authors will be notified by September 15, 2023, about the status of their proposals and chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by December 30, 2023, and all interested authors will receive the guidelines for manuscript submission in due time. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project. Note: There are no submission or acceptance fees for manuscripts submitted to this book project.
