Gloria Park and Sarah Henderson Lee, Special-Issue Editors
Deadline for submissions is 1 October 2013

TESOL Journal announces a call for abstracts (of no more than 600 words excluding references) for the 2014 special-topic issue on nonnativeness, race, class, gender, and sexuality in an era of World Englishes. This special TESOL Journal issue will showcase articles on the connection between nonnative speakers working with World Englishes, as well as the critical issues of race, gender, class, and sexuality, in enhancing the second language teacher education curricula.

Much research has been conducted on examining the personal, academic, and professional experiences of nonnative speakers working with English language learners and pre/in-service teachers in world-languages teacher education contexts. This special issue aims to uncover the rich experiences of nonnative speakers, to provide teacher educators and researchers alike the opportunity to begin to understand the learning and teaching identities of nonnative speakers navigating through multiple, dynamic, fluid, and transnational spaces.

For accepted abstracts, the following highlights the submission guidelines: Articles should be previously unpublished work with implications for a variety of TESOL professionals. The following submissions will be considered for publication: full-length articles (2,500–7,000 words including references, tables, etc.), Language Teacher Research (2,000–3,000 words) 21st Century Language Skills (1,000–2,000 words), Teaching English as an International Language (2,500–5,000 words), Book & Materials Reviews (500–750 words), and Communities of Participation in TESOL (2,000–3,000 words). Contributions from all regions of the world are encouraged. Read more about the different journal sections on the TJ Web site.
