Launch of the Digital Modern Languages Section on Modern Languages Open

Modern Languages Open, the Liverpool University Press open access platform for
the publication of modern languages research, is delighted to announce the
addition of a Digital Modern Languages section to the platform.

The new 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.
