Globe: A Journal of Language, Culture and Communication

Globe: A Journal of Language, Culture and Communication,
or Globe for short, is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal which seeks to publish original quality research articles in language, linguistics, and communication studies. Globe is an open source journal providing free access to its contents; also Globe does not impose any form of fee or charge on authors who publish in it.

Globe is published at least once a year, and a standard issue consists of a thematic section (whose articles address a specific theme or framework in language and/or communiction) and an open section. In addition, there is a section for reviews of relevant scientific monographs.

The thematic section of the fifth issue focuses on the notions of place and (dis)placement in language understood in a broad sense. We thus invite contributions dealing with all aspects within this area, such as, but not limited to, the following: 

- The socio-psychological or cognitive links between vernacular languages and local identity formation

- Placement understood in terms of stance and how that is discursively constructed

- Places in syntactic structures

- Displaced peoples and their language use, e.g. code-switching, L1/L2 transfer, socio-psychological aspects of language use

 Theoretical papers on different aspects of places and (dis)placement are also welcome. 

 Extended deadline for contribution to the fifth issue: 17 February 2016

The open section and the review section are not thematically restricted, and we welcome contributions for these within all aspects of the general scope of the journal.
