Call for Papers for Special Issue of Language Learning & Technology 

Theme: Hegemonies in CALL

Guest Editors: Marie-Noelle Lamy and Mark Pegrum

An assumption that the technologies, pedagogies, educational and sociocultural 
norms associated with CALL are universal has implicitly permeated much of the 
discipline's research over the past two decades. In this issue we will draw 
together critical perspectives that problematize the workings of hegemonies. By 
"hegemony," we understand a situation where one culture or one form of praxis 
predominates and, deliberately or not, prevents the development or continued 
viability of alternative cultures and forms of praxis. We will assemble a 
provocative collection, from a multicultural, multilingual group of 
contributors, contrasting voices from the Anglosphere with voices from less 
well-served territories/cultures to ensure a rich dialogue between and around 
articles. We particularly welcome proposals for articles that include less 
well-researched languages, student cohorts and teaching contexts.

Please consult the LLT Website for general guidelines on submission 
( and research 

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

institutional policies, expectations and norms)

cultural norms and Western approaches to tolerance, openness, relativism and 
the skills associated with intercultural competence)
