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 a 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 workplace and the broader
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 regular, external peer
review (submit online through website).

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