Dear Authors,

We cordially invite you to contribute a manuscript (empirically driven or theoretically well-reasoned) to a 2023 special issue of the International Journal of Language Studies (IJLS) in the area of English language education, language studies, applied linguistics, language and society, language and communication, and language and culture. The special issue will be published in August/September 2023.

Manuscripts should focus on any of the following areas:

- The relationship between diversity, equity, language activism, and social justice
- Monolingualism, multilingualism (mulitilingualisms), languaging, translanguaging, and plurilanguaging as constructs that can or cannot promote equity and social justice
- How new and emerging technologies can promote language activism, language equity, and social justice OR how the relationship between new and emerging technologies and language(s) can bring about language equity and social justice?
- The way in which notions like decolonisation, decoloniality, epistemologies of the South, southern multilingualisms, indigenisation, and subalternisation can help achieve social justice and language equity
- How language activism and social activism can influence language equity and social justice

Abstract Submission Deadline: 7th December 2022
