      From: Pauline Bryant <Pauline.Bryant@...>
      Subject: Current Issues in Language Planning

      Full Title: Current Issues in Language Planning

      Linguistic Field(s): None;Sociolinguistics

      Subject Language(s): English

      Language Family(ies): English

      Call Deadline: 15-Feb-2006

      Proposals are invited for papers for an issue of the journal on
      Language Planning and Compulsory Foreign Language Studies in
      Primary/Elementary Schools. Abstracts should be about 300 words.

      The teaching of foreign languages in primary/elementary schools has
      not received the same attention from language planners as in later
      stages of education. This volume will examine the issues involved in
      deciding whether to make the study of foreign languages compulsory;
      choosing the language(s) to be taught, particularly in multicultural
      nations; whether to support community or indigenous languages;
      fostering bilingualism; the effect of such language teaching on
      attitudes to other languages; planning for models of teaching and
      teacher training; the consequences for planning language teaching in
      secondary schools; and the role of language teaching in supporting
      governments' social and economic policies.

      See http://www.cilp.net for information about the journal and other
      calls for papers.
