Greetings all...

At the risk of seeming self-promotional, I thought I'd let you all know 
that the most recent issue of TESOL Quarterly is a special issue on 
language policies and their enactments (situated perspectives) in 
different parts of the world, including India, Johannesburg, Canada, 
Sub-Saharan Africa, the U.S.,  Bolivia, Cuba, Japan, Djibouti, Florida, 
France, London, United Arab Emirates, and Argentina. Co-edited by myself 
and Brian Morgan, the issue offers a range of  very local perspectives 
on policies around English and other languages, a realm that TESOL, as a 
discipline has tended to relegate to the margins. Along with 4 
full-length papers and 10 brief reports, the issue also offers a Forum 
section where practioners--principals, administrators and 
researchers--write in the first person about their engagements with 
policies in institutions, programs and research domains. Running thickly 
through all the pieces are also strains around globalization.
Attached is a pdf file of our introduction to the volume which 
synthesizes the various view points in the issue. Both Brian and I would 
welcome feedback.
