Language, Culture and Society
Language, Culture and Society provides an international platform for cutting-edge research that advances thinking and understanding of the complex intersections of language, culture and society, with the aim of pushing traditional disciplinary boundaries through theoretical and methodological innovation. Contributors are encouraged to pay close attention to the contextualized forms of semiotic human activity upon which social conventions, categories and indexical meanings are constructed, actualized, negotiated and disputed vis-à-vis wider social, cultural, racial, economic and historical conditions. The journal is open to analysis focusing on different spatio-temporal scales; it also welcomes contributions addressing such issues through the lens of any of the analytical paradigms stemming from the sociolinguistic and anthropological study of language, discourse and communication. Exploration of new communicative contexts and practices is considered particularly valuable, and research that breaks new ground by making connections with other disciplines is highly encouraged. Thinking-aloud pieces, reactions and debates, and other alternative formats of contributions are also welcome.
