Call for Papers: University-school relationships in language teacher education


Universities and schools have central roles in teacher education. However, the relationship that prevails, many times, between these two educational institutions is asymmetrical and favors the status of the former (university) over the latter (school). We understand that this is a relationship of coloniality, following a colonial matrix of power based on binary structures, which continues to be reproduced even in the absence of colonial administration (Quijano, 2005; Grosfóguel, 2010). We argue for the need to challenge such a relationship, since, from a decolonial perspective, universities and schools are knowledge construction and praxis redefinition places. Therefore, we invite teachers and researchers in Applied Linguistics to reflect on the university-school relationship in language teacher education, submitting texts in English, Portuguese, or Spanish that discuss this topic.

Special Issue: Corpus linguistics: studies and applications

The Brazilian Journal of Applied Linguistics, available at, is announcing a call for papers for the special issue on corpus studies and applications. In recent decades, corpus linguistics (CL) has grown significantly and has profoundly influenced our understanding of various languages by identifying linguistic patterns in natural texts. Moreover, CL has proven to be exceptionally versatile, finding applications in diverse contexts. Among these contexts, CL stands out in language teaching and learning, describing language used in professional communities (e.g., doctors, physicists, linguists), and investigating specialized registers (e.g., laws, news, literary texts) among others.
