ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR LANGUAGE STUDIES

The International Society for Language Studies (ISLS) is a 501c(6)
non-profit, organized in 2002 by scholars united in their goal to have a
forum encouraging and disseminating post-positivistic research in languages
matters, broadly conceived. Prior to the founding of ISLS such research was
presented in venues primarily designed for applied linguistics, educational
studies, language-specific concerns, literary criticism, anthropology,
sociology, history, or similar disciplines. ISLS seeks to bring together
scholars from research disciplines whose research has been on issues of
language studies. The mission of ISLS is to sustain:

…an interdisciplinary association of scholars who explore critical
perspectives on language. Within these perspectives, language is understood
as both shaping and being shaped by historical, political, social, and
cultural contexts. Research on language from such perspectives has
historically been marginalized as well as compartmentalized within
artificially constructed academic disciplines. The primary purpose of ISLS
is to bridge these arbitrary disciplinary territories and provide a forum
for both theoretical and empirical research, from existing and emergent
research methodologies, for exploring the relationships among language,
power, discourses, and social practices.

Informed by this mission, ISLS retains its grassroots and all-volunteer
origins in efforts to organize conferences (St. Thomas, 2003; Montreal,
2005; Honolulu, 2007; Orlando, 2009), produce its quarterly journal *Critical
Inquiry in Language Studies* (published by Taylor & Francis) and publish
its new book volume series *Readings in Language Studies* (published by
ISLS, Inc.).

ISLS retains a low membership fee that includes the quarterly journal and
conference registration reduction.
     ALSO OF NOTE      ISLS 2013 IN PUERTO RICO

We are pleased to announce that the ISLS 2013 conference will take place in
San Juan, Puerto Rico. We received a  great suggestions from the conference
destinations survey that members completed over the summer, and Puerto Rico
was among those at the top of the list. The planning committee explored a
number of other locations, including several in Europe.  Unfortunately, the
cost to hold a conference of our size in those locations would be
prohibitive at this time.  Look for additional information regarding the
conference in early 2012, but please mark June 13-15, 2013 in your
calendars for ISLS 2013 in San Juan, Puerto Rico!
     The Language Studies Foundation
The Language Studies Foundation, founded in March 2010, will provide funds
for grants and scholarships to encourage improved learning and discovery in
this very important field. The organization will distribute funds to other
educational organizations as grants for language studies, as well as
awarding scholarships in secondary education and prizes for excellent work
in the field of language studies.  To learn more, visit
