Special Issue of the Journal of Asian Pacific Communication (JAPC)

Islam has had a tremendous influence on Muslims in various aspects of life,
including social, cultural, political, economic, and linguistic. However, its
linguistic influence has received relatively less attention to date. This
Special Issue of JAPC focuses on Islam and language in the Asian Pacific as
well as East Asian diaspora communities in other parts of the world. The JAPC
invites scholars whose work focuses on language and Islam to analyze the
impact of Islam on language (or even vice versa). The following is
non-exhaustive list of potential topics:
- The popular belief of the superiority of Arabic to other languages; its
origins, evidence, effects on how other languages are perceived by Muslims
- Perception of the effects of global English on Arabic, the language of
Islam. Perceptions of students, teachers, and teachers of non-English
subjects. Has English 'corrupted' Arabic?
- How do Muslim students/teachers who consider English 'the language of
infidels' justify learning/teaching it?
- Struggles that teaching a foreign language has gone through in certain
contexts due to religious resistance
- How do devout Muslim learners of English interpret 'shunning' non-believers
(as the Quran prescribes)? How do they go about interacting with non-Muslim
members of the L2 community and its cultural products (e.g., music), and how
has this affected L2 learning?
- How do devout Muslims interact with members of the same and opposite gender
from the L2 community? 
- What is the effect of Quran memorization and similar practices on language
acquisition (whether L1 or L2)?
- Are there any gender differences in any of the above?
- Discourse analysis of Mosque sermons and other speech acts
- Islam is not as homogeneous as might be believed. Do the different Islamic
sects differ in any of the above?
- Other relevant topics

Interested authors should send a brief abstract stating the theme,
methodology, and aim of the paper by 30 October 2018 to Ali H. Al-Hoorie
(hoorie_a at jic.edu.sa).
