BILD research community launches new journal


The Belonging, Identity, Language, and Diversity (BILD) research community has launched The Journal of Belonging, Identity, Language, and Diversity/Revue de Langage, Identité, Diversité, et Appartenance (J-BILD/R-LIDA), which will operate as an independent branch of the BILD/LIDA tree.

J-BILD is a semi-annual open access, non-blind, peer-reviewed journal based at McGill University that aims to promote academic scholarship and critical discourse related to issues of belonging, identity, language and diversity, particularly as they intersect with the fields of education, sociolinguistics, critical sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, and linguistic anthropology. J-BILD will seek to publish scholarly works from all stages of the research cycle, including research proposals, literature reviews, research articles, and book/article reviews. J-BILD welcomes submissions from graduate students and new scholars.

BILD research community anticipates the publication of their inaugural J-BILD issue in November, 2017. For more information about the journal, please visit the BILD/LIDA website.
