Call for Proposals for Guest Editorships of Special Sections of Journal

Studies in Hispanic and Lusophone Linguistics is a refereed journal that
publishes work in all sub-fields of linguistics and from all theoretical
approaches on Hispanic and Lusophone languages, including not only Spanish
and Portuguese, but also Catalan, Galician, Spanish- and Portuguese-based

Each issue of Studies in Hispanic and Lusophone Linguistics has a section
entitled 'Viewpoints'. Each Viewpoints section has a topic of broad
interest to the journal's audience and contains several (usually 4-5) short
position papers (2500-5000 words), with each approaching that topic from a
different perspective (often, though not necessarily, from different fields
of linguistic study). Past topics have been the place of dialectology
within modern linguistics, the role of variation in mental grammars, the
role of the abstract in linguistics, the place of morphology in the
linguistic system, the role of linguistics in language teaching, and the
place of naturally-occurring and elicited data in linguistic studies. The
two 2011 issues have as topics interfaces and technology in linguistics.
Tables of contents for past issues are available on the journal's website
(www.shll-journal.com) where specific titles of individual Viewpoints
papers can be seen.

We are currently seeking proposals for guest editorships for future
Viewpoints sections. Proposals should include a cover page with the
proposed topic, contact information for the potential guest editor(s), and
a brief biographical note about the potential guest editor(s). The
remainder of the proposal should include a proposed table of contents with
the authors (already contacted and willing to participate) along with the
perspective from which each of the authors will address the topic, and a 1
to 2 page proposal that defines the topic, identifies the range of
perspectives that are relevant to the discussion, and addresses why this
topic will be of interest to the readership of Studies in Hispanic and
Lusophone Linguistics. It is acceptable that the guest editor also be
author of one of the papers. The first accepted proposal will be for the
Spring 2012 issue, and the complete Viewpoints section would need to be
submitted to the journal's editor no later than September 2011.

Please submit proposals to the editor of Studies in Hispanic and Lusophone
Linguistics, Timothy Face, electronically at facex002umn.edu.
