Call for abstracts for a Special Issue of Language & Intercultural Communication

Language and Interculturality in Chinese Higher Education: Integrating Global and Local Perspectives

Guest editors: Jan Van Maele & Lixian Jin

The Editorial Board of Language & Intercultural Communication invited the guest editors to submit a full proposal for a special issue on the above theme, following the RICH-Ed conference that was held at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China on March 20-21, 2021.

The contributions in the special issue will highlight and critically reflect on practices and their impact in the following three areas:

Intercultural learning and teaching in higher education in China, in and outside language teaching;
