Submissions and the editorial process

 

LINGUACULTURE is a peer-reviewed open-access academic journal belonging to the Centre for (Inter)cultural and (Inter)lingual Research of Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi, Romania. Our intention is to provide an appropriate platform for presenting, discussing and disseminating new concepts, theories and research findings related to a broad spectrum of topics. This academic journal addresses specialists and graduate students in the fields of linguistics, literary theory and criticism, cultural anthropology, translation studies, theatre and film studies, language learning and teaching.

Contributors are encouraged to explore these various aspects in theory and practice and transcend traditional boundaries by interdisciplinary collaboration. This also involves the exploration of transcultural phenomena, redefined in such terms as linguistic and cultural identity, diversity, intercultural dynamism, cultural and linguistic translation, rewriting, hybridization, creolization, diaspora and virtual community.

The journal is thematic, but valuable contributions relating to any of the researched fields of investigation are also published in special issues. Please consult our Web site for forthcoming issues and contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

LINGUACULTURE does not perceive any publication fees.
