> policy?

> requirements?
> •       How has language policy influenced and been influenced by
> immigration and integration?
>
> Education:
> •       How does globalization affect critical language awareness in
> education?
> •       What is the relationship between globalization and current trends
> in
> language education policy (especially in regards to the teaching of
> critical languages)?
> •       What is the role of language assessment? What are its advantages
> and
> dangers, particularly in light of globalization?
>
> Media:
> •       How does globalization shape public discourse (and vice versa)?
> •       How has language use in the public sphere (signage, verbal
> announcements, etc.) been influenced by globalization?

> papers relevant to the policy, education, and media effects of
> language related to globalization are welcome.
