New book series
This edited volume explores the scope of interdisciplinary linguistics and includes voices from scholars in different disciplines within the social sciences and humanities, as well as different sub-disciplines within linguistics. Chapters within this volume offer a range of perspectives on interdisciplinary studies, represent a connection between different disciplines, or demonstrate an application of interdisciplinarity within linguistics. The volume is divided into three sections: perspectives, connections, and applications.
The goal of this section is to address more generally the definition(s) of and value of multi-, trans-, and inter-disciplinary work. In what areas and for what purposes is there a need for work that crosses discipline boundaries? What are the challenges of undertaking such work? What opportunities are available?
This section features paired chapters written by scholars in different disciplines that discuss the same concept/idea/issue. For example, a discussion of how "assemblage" works in archaeology is paired with a discussion of how "assemblage" can be used to talk about ‘style’ in linguistics.
This section can be framed as sample answers to the question: What does interdisciplinarity look like?
"A variety of thoughtful viewpoints and informative texts make this book a very welcome and inspiring contribution to studies about language, culture, and communication. This series is likely to be valuable for many readers, and especially for researchers and students in Linguistics who are interested in developing collaborative work across disciplines and with stakeholders. The 18 chapters in this first volume embrace a wide array of linguistic approaches as well as providing insight into disciplines other than Linguistics […]. All authors are experts engaged in interdisciplinary initiatives who participate in theoretical debates and who discuss methodological approaches – some of them also provide considerations on practical issues. Contributors generously offer numerous concrete examples and detailed illustrations of how inter- and transdisciplinary approaches to language and communication have been developed within different research fields. […] Summing up, the overall level of fresh thinking in this collection sets high standards for those to come in this new series."
