New volume of Critical Multilingualism Studies emphasizes Francophone and Latin American contexts

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

The latest issue of Critical Multilingualism Studies, co-edited by two UA German Studies professors, is released this month.  

Issue 5.2 of the interdisciplinary journal explores the topic of “Legitimate Speakers in Contested Spaces.”

The journal is co-edited by David Gramling and Chantelle Warner, both associate professors in the Department of German Studies. Amanda Snell, a doctoral student in the Second Language Acquisition & Teaching program, is the associate editor.

The new volume includes an introductory essay by William Heidenfeldt and eight new articles, each representing diverse contexts and approaches from literary and cultural studies and applied linguistics to the nexus of questions that coalesce around multilingual speaking subjects. A particular emphasis of this volume is on Francophone and Latin American contexts

Critical Multilingualism Studies is a peer-reviewed, transdisciplinary journal of scholarship on multilingualism, monolingualism, and their related social, cultural, historical, and literary/medial phenomena. The new issue can be found at

Future volumes focusing on multilingual approaches to literary classics and multilingualism in contexts of migration and refuge will appear in late 2017 and early 2018.
