Call for Papers - Transperipheries: an agenda for socially engaged researches

 

Call for Papers - Brazilian Journal of Applied Linguistics (RBLA ISSN: 1984-6398, Qualis A1)

The Brazilian Journal of Applied Linguistics (RBLA ISSN: 1984-6398, Qualis A1), sponsored by the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) program of Linguistics Studies and the Brazilian Association of Applied Linguistics (ALAB), welcomes articles for a special edition on Transperipheries: an agenda for socially engaged researches. Proposals must be submitted by September 30th, 2022.

THEMATIC AXES:

            Over time, an understanding of the periphery as a stigmatized territory, capable of being eliminated from urban landscapes around the world, has justified various forms of isolation of peripheral populations, often evident in hygienist government initiatives. In particular, in recent years, the state has aggravated processes of exclusion and violence through actions such as arbitrary public safety policies, the forced removal of residents, cancellation of transportation lines, constant cuts in funding for cultural and leisure projects and military invasions marked by brutality.

            However, in Brazil and across the globe, peripheries and their subjects have found innovative ways to survive and re-exist, breaking with powerful exclusionary logics, occupying spaces to which access is usually denied, establishing interesting connections to promote their own initiatives and engaging with translocal and transnational flows of information, participation and decision which are no longer restricted to hegemonic groups. Peripheries, in this sense, run counter to the dynamics of coloniality and the division between global north and south, operating on multiple scales in order to create their own ways of living and to feed their networks based on their own interests.

            Given this scenario, the Brazilian Journal of Applied Linguistics - RBLA - invites researchers interested in investigating the language practices of these transperipheries - understood as spaces of dialogue amongst peripheral territories (WINDLE et al., 2020) - to submit their texts, reflecting on how the strategies and actions of survival and re-existence of their residents raise issues relevant to studies of language.
