The following link leads to information relating to the broad spectrum of areas that the journal is covering:
International Journal of Linguistics, Literature and Translation.
Chew, G.C.L. (24 April 2018). Forms of tolerated discrimination in the workplace. The Straits Times. A19; online.
I have coined the term “institutionalized marginalization” to describe one of the common forms of tolerated discrimination experienced by some contract workers.
Those researching on workplace language and issues might be interested to pursue the topic.
We have just advertised the following
Teaching Associate position in Sociolinguistics at Sheffield:
The successful applicant’s key responsibility will be to teach a Level 3 (final year) UG Language and Gender module. Applicants should have (or be close to completing) a PhD in sociolinguistics, so this may suit a PhD student.

Please can I ask you to circulate this to anyone who you think may be interested? The deadline for the post is very short (5thDecember!) as we are looking to recruit someone to start in February.
