The International Society for Language Studies (ISLS) was created in 2002
by scholars united in their goal to have a forum encouraging and
disseminating post-positivistic research in language matters, broadly
conceived. Prior to the founding of the ISLS, such research was commonly
presented in venues primarily designed for applied linguistics,
educational studies, language-specific concerns, literary criticism,
history, sociology, anthropology, or similar disciplines.  The ISLS seeks
to bring together scholars from disciplines whose research focus has been
on issues of language studies.

Some of their research interests:  Action research, Anthropological
studies, Comparative studies, Curricular reform, Educational linguistics,
Language contact and  conflict, Language minority education, Language
policy and planning, Interdisciplinary approaches
to language study, International perspectives, Sociology of language
education, Teacher education.
