We are pleased to announce the addition of a Digital Modern Languages section to our open access platform, Modern Languages Open. The section will provide a space to reflect on the transformations wrought by new media and technologies across a range of fields of study, from cultural, linguistic and historical studies to more pedagogical perspectives.
Section Editors Paul Spence (King’s College London) and Naomi Wells (Institute of Modern Languages Research) said:
“Our aim for the Section is to raise the visibility of digital teaching and research in Modern Languages, and to bring together distinct linguistic and cultural perspectives which challenge the dominance of Anglophone approaches to digital research.”
Joining the Section Editors, the Editorial Board includes Caroline Ardrey (University of Birmingham), Guyda Armstrong (University of Manchester), Joe Dale (independent consultant), Orhan Elmaz (University of St Andrews), Mirjam Hauck (Open University) and Claire Taylor (University of Liverpool).
The Editors welcome proposals for Special Issues as well as the submission of individual research articles. They are also committed to exploring new forms of publication, in terms of audience, genre and media, and welcome proposals for innovative forms of research output.
