The series editors now invite proposals for new volumes.
Palgrave Macmillan's ' Languages at War' series brings together books that deal with the role of languages in situations of conflict, including war, civil war, occupation, peace-making, peace-enforcement, and humanitarian action in war zones. It offers an interdisciplinary perspective, drawing on applied linguistics, sociolinguistics, translation studies, intercultural communication, history, politics, international relations and cultural studies.
The series, which has already published 8 volumes, is now extending its scope to include the language implications of the aftermaths of war, including refugees, exiles, post-conflict change, and the 'shock of war' on the language professions themselves. Books will be published in hardcover initially and will be published in paperback form after two years.
Authors who would like to submit proposals for the series are invited to contact the two editors, Professor Hilary Footitt (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Professor Mike Kelly (email@example.com) enclosing a brief outline for preliminary consideration, before completing a full publisher’s proposal. Full proposals will be subject to detailed external review.
