Call For Papers: Linguistic Justice and Analytic Philosophy Special issue of Philosophical Papers

31.03.2017
ESCOP

Guest Editors: Filippo Contesi (Jean Nicod), Moti Mizrahi (Florida Tech), and Enrico Terrone (Turin).

The topics of linguistic discrimination and linguistic justice have received little attention from contemporary analytic philosophers despite the fact that there is a growing body of evidence in linguistics and social psychology about implicit negative biases towards speakers and writers perceived as non-native. In fact, issues of linguistic discrimination and justice are particularly urgent in analytic philosophy because English is undoubtedly the lingua franca of contemporary analytic philosophy. For this reason, it is important to think about what it means to be a person for whom English is not a first language and who tries to participate in the academic life of contemporary analytic philosophy.The aim of this special issue of Philosophical Papers is to consider the circumstances of being a non-native speaker and writer of English in analytic philosophy. In addition to philosophical and meta-philosophical perspectives, we also encourage submissions from different approaches and disciplines, including psychology, linguistics and the social sciences. Submission deadline 1 October, 2017.
