Buchreihe: „Sprachkönnen und Sprachbewusstheit in Europa / Language Competence and Awareness in Europe“

Series editor: Amei Koll-Stobbe, University of Greifswald (Germany)

Published by Peter Lang, Frankfurt am Main

Language use as social practice depicts a plethora of phenomena in Europe and across its continental and cultural borders as consequence of the emergence of English as an international lingua franca, new communication technologies, and mass mobility. Economic globalization and the digitalization of information flows have an impact on our conceptions of language competence and awareness. Phenomena such as plurilingualism, transference, code-switching and discursive heteroglossia have feeded into mainstream sociolinguistic topic areas during the last thirty years, and reflect changes in the conception of language(s) as ideal codified communication code(s) to open and adaptive repertoire(s) and resource(s) for communicative interactions as situated (and context dependent) social practices.

The book series provides a platform for pluri-methodological studies and reflective analytical discussions on the complexity of language use in post-modern and post-factual communication cultures in the theoretical frameworks of sociolinguistics, contact linguistics, and discursive linguistics.

Authors of doctoral dissertations as well as collected volumes and monographs that relate to the series profile are encouraged to hand in manuscripts.
