Translanguaging and Language Policy in the Global South

As a socially just and transformative pedagogy for learning and teaching in complex multilingual encounters, translanguaging has been widely documented in many parts of the world. A plethora of studies under labels such as Southern epistemologies has recently made a case of specific role of translanguaging to decolonize ways of knowing, being and acting in the Global South contexts. However very little is known about the interface between translanguaging and innovative language in education policies. This special issue of RBLA seeks to publish studies that interrogate an argumentative dialogue between socially named languages in policies and the translanguaging principle of learner repertoires in the Global South. We anticipate empirical research articles addressing translanguaging spaces, paradox in policy contexts, teacher agency, epistemic justice, innovative methodological considerations, country-case studies and other topics within this frame of reference.


This special issue accepts articles in English only.
