Count me in.
The globalisation of discourse practices is such a widespread and important
phenomenon today that it would surely be of interest to many scholars
outside our CRITICS/CDA community: people involved in postcolonial theory,
(cross-) cultural studies, macrosociolinguistics, etc. Including such
people in the proposed net could produce some valuable cross-fertilization.
One place to start might be with the list of attendees at this summer's
Theory, Culture & Society conference in Berlin; another might the the
editorial board and/or readership of World Englishes; etc.
