CFP Language Epistemology & Politics of Knowledge Production

“PublicationCall for Papers for a Themed Issue: Language, Epistemology and the Politics of Knowledge Production, Journal of Language, Culture and Society. Deadline: November 15, 2019.

Editors invite abstracts for full-length manuscripts to be published in Language, Culture and Society (LCS) as part of a themed issue on Language, Epistemology and the Politics of Knowledge Production.

In the first two editorials of the journal editors argued for an approach to knowledge on language and culture as a terrain of struggle. This, they believe, requires close attention to how our analytical and conceptual choices, the collaborations we engage with, the academic and political agendas we pursue and the ways we relate our work to knowledge produced by others get entrenched with complex dynamics of power and inequality characterizing both the academic fields and the social world at large.

Editors invite contributions aiming to explore how these processes are re-articulated through the very epistemological choices that we researchers as knowledge producers make in the language disciplines. They welcome texts addressing the political nature of such choices by critically engaging with frameworks that may have contributed to normalize meanings of empirical neutrality and universality. This may include issues concerned with any aspect of data generation/analysis as well as with our own writing in the packaging of the stories that we claim to document.
