[CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS]
LANGUAGE AND POWER
In this issue of Unravel, we welcome accessible, jargon-free stories and discussions that explore the relationship between language and power. Some possible questions to explore for this special feature include:
+ How ideologies and power structures are constructed or reinforced through language
+ How language interacts with social justice
+ How marginalized communities and individuals reclaim power through language, or use linguistic practices as resistance
+ (For instance: this piece on the reclamation of Indigenous languages)
+ Stories or explorations of linguistic discrimination or issues related to linguistic human rights
+ Or any other original approach you come up with!
As always, we also welcome topics outside the special feature: language profiles, stories on language acquisition, etymology pieces, interviews with noteworthy individuals or teams working on language-related issues.
If you’d like to contribute to Issue 15, please pitch to us by 15 November 2020! (This can be short — we just want to hear about your ideas and potential directions for your piece.)
Once we review your pitch, editors from the Unravel team will work with you towards producing a final draft for publication by 8 January 2021.
