CALL FOR PAPERS: LANGUAGE POLICY SPECIAL ISSUE

Call centers: Language policy and language ideology in action


The journal Language Policy (edited by Elana Shohamy and Kendall  
King) welcomes original research papers for an upcoming special issue  
of the journal on language policy, ideology, and interaction in call  
centers around the world. As international business, out-sourcing,  
and globalization have intensified in recent years, call centers have  
emerged as major and dynamic sites of regulated talk. This special  
issue of Language Policy will explore how such talk is restricted,  
invented, and negotiated in the work place and the wider implications  
for language policy, education and society. We welcome papers that  
document and analyze language policies in call centers and/or  
consider the wider implications of these phenomena for language  
policy, ideology, and use.

Deadlines and dates:
September 1, 2007: Submission of 250-word paper abstract (send to  
akk25 at georgetown.edu)
January 1, 2008: Submission of full paper for blind external peer  
review (submit online through website).
Early 2009: Expected publication.

Please contact the editors directly with any questions.
Please see the journal website for more details about Language Policy.
