CALL FOR PAPERS: Language, Education and Society (March 2021)

Call for Papers – Kieli, koulutus ja yhteiskunta (Language, Education and Society) (March 2021)

The Finnish Network for Language Education Policies (Kieliverkosto) will continue with the theme ”The language reserve of Finland” in 2021. Kieliverkosto will publish a theme number ”Lights and shadows of the language reserve” in March 2021 in online journal Kieli, koulutus ja yhteiskunta (Language, Education and Society). The theme number will hopefully answer these kinds of questions:

  • What kinds of matters and viewpoints are left in the shadow when we discuss about language reserve in Finland and future needs of language skills? What should we talk about more?

  • What kinds of issues in language education or in language education policies we need more research or experience on?

  • Which themes and viewpoints in language education policies or in applied linguistics should have more attention during next few years?

  • What is already fine in language education and in language education policies?

The theme number will be published in March 2021 (week 12).

If you’re interested in writing, please contact Kieliverkosto 15.1.2021 at latest. Tell us about your article idea and possible structure for the article. The actual hand in date for articles is 26.2.2021, if your article idea gets accepted. Some of the articles might be published later in 2021.
