2016/08/11 - Call for chapter proposals: Immigrants, Refugees, Asylum-Seekers, and Forensic Linguistics
The Germanic Society for Forensic Linguistics (GSFL) is issuing a call for original chapters for a forthcoming book on: Immigrants, Refugees, Asylum-Seekers, and Forensic Linguistics.
Millions of people around the world are forced to flee their homes to escape war and persecution. In an effort to process this unprecedented number of people in need, many government agencies have increasingly sought the services of forensic linguists to help determine the true origin of applicants seeking refuge. The purpose of this publication is to provide a critical examination of the historical and contemporary application of FL/FP methods used in the decision-making processes affecting immigrants, refugees, and asylum-seekers.
Chapters focusing on any of the following sub-areas are welcome: Language and Law; Translation and Interpretation; Forensic Phonology and Phonetics; Forensic Linguistics and Ethics; Forensic Linguistics and Education. Case studies of individual countries as well as international comparisons are equally welcome. Deadline: February 15 2017. For more information and submission instructions click here.
