>Special topic issue: Queer inquiry in language education
>Cynthia D. Nelson, Guest Editor
>
>The Journal of Language, Identity and Education is seeking submissions
>for a special topic issue that examines sexual identities within
>language education (or language-in-education) contexts. This special
>topic issue, entitled 'Queer inquiry in language education', will
>provide a unique and timely forum for exploring questions such as:
>
>     * Has the proliferation of increasingly visible lesbian, gay,
>       bisexual, transgender and queer identities and communities led to
>       a re-thinking of language teaching practices?
>     * What challenges and opportunities arise for students, teachers,
>       teacher educators and other stakeholders in language or literacy
>       education when attempts are made to foster classroom inquiry about
>       sexual identities?
>     * How might queer theory be of use in moving beyond monosexual
>       pedagogies, especially in teaching contexts that are intercultural
>       and multilingual?
>     * How might these questions be addressed, or need to be reframed,
>       with reference to language-focused programs in regions of the
>       world that tend to be under-represented in literature on gay/queer
>       matters in education?
>     * What innovations in theory, pedagogy, policy or praxis are needed
>       in order to engage a range of sexual identities - both as subject
>       matter and as participant positionings - within language and
>       literacy programs?
>
>
>The Journal of Language, Identity and Education invites contributions to
>this special topic issue to be published in 2005. We are soliciting
>papers that critically examine the domain of sexual identity within
>second language, foreign language or literacy programs, or other
>education programs in which language is a central focus. Papers may
>engage with a diversity of teaching contexts and levels (e.g. primary,
>secondary, tertiary, adult or community-based education), approaches to
>knowledge production, and theoretical frameworks, though all papers are
>expected to consider questions of identity, subjectivity or
>representation as explored in queer theory or other frameworks
>(poststructuralist, feminist, postcolonialist). Contributions from
>nontraditional settings and under-represented scholarly circles are
>encouraged.
>
>We are currently soliciting two- to three-page abstracts for this issue.
>(Brief proposals for book reviews are also welcome.) Send by e-mail or
>snail mail two copies of the abstract and a brief (50-word) biographical
>statement with a full mailing address, daytime/evening phone numbers,
>and email address (if available). Abstracts should be mailed no later
>than March 1, 2004 to the following address:
