*International Multilingual Research Journal*

*Terrence G. Wiley* steps down as editor, succeeded by *Jeff MacSwan*****

We are pleased to announce that Jeff MacSwan will now serve as an
editor of* International
Multilingual Research Journal (IMRJ),* working together with Alfredo J.
Artiles in that capacity. MacSwan replaces Terrence G. Wiley, who served *
IMRJ *as a founding editor and now joins the IMRJ editorial board.****

Jeff MacSwan is professor of education and linguistics at the University of
Maryland.  MacSwan’s research focuses on the role of language in schooling,
and on education policy related to English Language Learners in the U.S.,
and on the linguistic study of bilingualism (codeswitching and language
contact).  MacSwan is the author of over fifty publications; examples of
his work appear in *Bilingualism: Language and Cognition*, *Hispanic
Journal of Behavioral Sciences*, *Lingua, Teachers College Record*, and in
edited collections. MacSwan is a Spencer Foundation/National Academy of
Education Postdoctoral Fellow, and has served as a visiting scholar at the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Center for the Study of
Multilingualism at Hamburg University.  He has given invited talks at
Harvard, Syracuse, Ohio State, Chicago, Arizona, Santa Barbara, Stanford,
Bangor, Hamburg, Bremen, Wuppertal, and the National Institutes of Health.**

Professor Alfredo Artiles will continue to serve as a journal editor. Dr.
Artiles is professor of culture, society, and education at Arizona State
University. Artiles co-directs the Equity Alliance at ASU and is also an
affiliated faculty member in the School of Transborder Studies. He has held
visiting professorships at Leibniz University (Germany), the University of
Göteborgs (Sweden), and Universidad del Valle de Guatemala.  Professor
Artiles’ interdisciplinary scholarship examines the educational
consequences of inequities related to the intersection of disability, race,
and language. His research publications and professional presentations have
reached research, policy, and practitioner audiences in education,
psychology, and related disciplines in the United States, Latin America,
Africa, and Europe.  Artiles served as vice president of the American
Educational Research Association (AERA), is an AERA Fellow, a Spencer
Foundation/National Academy of Education Postdoctoral Fellow, and a
Resident Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences
(Stanford University). ****

*IMRJ* owes a great debt of gratitude to Terrence G. Wiley, who is outgoing
as one of the journal’s founding editors.  Professor Wiley is President of
the Center for Applied Linguistics in Washington D.C. and Professor
Emeritus at Arizona State University, where he served as Executive Dean of
the Mary Lou Fulton Institute and Graduate School of Education, and former
Director of the Division of Educational Leadership & Policy Studies. His
teaching and research have focused on educational applied linguistics,
concentrating on language policy, literacy and biliteracy studies, language
and immigration, bilingual education and bilingualism, heritage and
community language education, English and globalization, and English as a
second and international language with emphases on educational equity and
access. His recent publications include *The Education of Language Minority
Immigrants in the United States* (co-editor, 2009, Multilingual
Matters). *Literacy
and Language Diversity in the United States* (2nd edition, 2005, Center for
Applied Linguistics), and *Ebonics in the Urban Education
Debate*(co-editor, 2nd edition, 2005, Multilingual Matters).  In 2009,
Wiley succeeded Professor Bernard Spolsky as the convener of the
international Language Policy Research Network (LPREN) of AILA, Association
Internationale de Linguistique Appliquée (International Association of
Applied Linguistics).****

Liz Collier served with Amy Papacek as the *IMRJ* editorial assistants last
year. Liz will be succeeded by Qiong Xia at the University of Maryland as
editorial assistant.  We are grateful to Liz for her expert stewardship of
her post, and thank her for her excellent service!****

*Please Consider Submitting Your Work*

*The International Multilingual Research Journal (IMRJ)* invites scholarly
contributions with strong interdisciplinary perspectives to understand
bi/multilingualism, bi/multiliteracy, and linguistic democracy. The
journal’s focus is on these topics as related to languages other than
English as well as dialectal variations of English. It has three thematic
emphases: IMRJ is committed to promoting equity, access, and social justice
in education, and to offering accessible research and policy analyses to
better inform scholars, educators, students, and policy makers. IMRJ is
particularly interested in scholarship grounded in interdisciplinary
frameworks that offers insights from linguistics, applied linguistics,
education, globalization and immigration studies, cultural psychology,
linguistic and psychological anthropology, sociolinguistics, literacy
studies, post-colonial studies, critical race theory, and critical theory
and pedagogy. It seeks theoretical and empirical scholarship with
implications for re-search, policy, and practice. Submissions of research
articles based on quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods are
encouraged. The journal includes book reviews and two occasional sections:
Perspectives and Research. For more information about submitting to IMRJ,
