Languages for Intercultural Communication and Education

Series Editors:
Michael Byram (University of Durham, UK)
Anthony J. Liddicoat (University of Warwick, UK)

The overall aim of this series is to publish books which ultimately inform learning and teaching, but whose primary focus is on the analysis of intercultural relationships, whether in textual form or in people's experience. There are also books which deal directly with pedagogy, with the relationships between language learning and cultural learning, between processes inside the classroom and beyond. They all have in common a concern with the relationship between language and culture, and the development of intercultural communicative competence.

A key purpose therefore is to encourage the study of languages and cultures in ways which can ultimately enrich practice. In this context, the series editors seek contributions to the series which reflect on the relationship between languages and intercultural communication and its implications for learning and teaching. In order to 'learn to live together' we need studies which analyse language and culture teaching itself: classroom processes, the inter-relationship between learning in the classroom and learning in a 'natural' environment, the effects on identity and self-understanding of language and culture learning. To complement established work on language acquisition, we need studies of 'culture acquisition' in pedagogical and in untutored, 'natural' surroundings. We also need studies from disciplines outside of education: from sociolinguistics, psychology, anthropology, ethnographies of communication, from literary, theatre and media studies where the prime focus is on how different people relate and communicate both within and out with the formal educational context.

All books in this series are externally peer-reviewed.

Proposals for the series are welcome and should be submitted to Anna Roderick. Please read our notes about how to submit a book proposal.
