make connections between research, theory, and teaching practice.

Session 3: Emotion and Language: Implications for Language Learning

This session presents recent research on the relationship between
affect and language learning. Papers should report on original
research or make connections between research, theory, and teaching
practice.

From: louise.harnby <louise.harnbySAGEPUB.CO.UK>
Subject: DISCOURSE STUDIES - Call for Papers


 FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS.....

DISCOURSE STUDIES.
Interdisciplinary Journal for the Study of Text and Talk

Editor: Teun A. van Dijk (University of Amsterdam)

A new journal edited by Teun van Dijk entitled Discourse Studies is
due for publication in February 1999. This multidisciplinary forum
will publish outstanding work on the structures and strategies of
written and spoken discourse, reviewed by an internationally renowned
Editorial Board.

While contributing to new developments at the cutting edge of theory
and method, its articles will also be accessible to students and other
newcomers to each area of specialization. Although intended as a
broadly conceived forum for the best international work on discourse
in any field and specialization, Discourse Studies will especially
focus on cross-disciplinary studies of text and talk in linguistics,
anthropology, ethnomethodology, cognitive and social psychology,
communication studies and law.

Articles that specifically deal with critical socio-political issues
are especially welcome in Sage's companion journal Discourse &
Society.

CALL FOR PAPERS

As from April 1998, high quality papers that fall within the scope and
meet the criteria outlined above are welcome. Please contact the
