Issue title: Audiovisual Translation in Applied Linguistics: Beyond Case Studies.

Guest Editors: Laura Incalcaterra McLoughlin, Jennifer Lertola, Noa Talaván

AVT in Applied Linguistics has seen a considerable amount of activity in recent years with the publication of many remarkable case studies. The editors feel that, notwithstanding the often pioneering importance of such studies, the time has come for a more comprehensive look at this specialized field and would therefore welcome original proposals on theoretical issues relating to this area of research.

Areas for consideration include, but are not limited to, the use of AVT in Second Language Acquisition in relation to:

1) pragmatics
2) syntax
3) lexicon
4) speaking/writing/reading/listening skills
5) audiovisual and/or transferrable skills
6) inter-culture
7) pedagogical translation
8) accessibility issues for language learners
Large-scale and/or international case studies may be considered, provided strong theoretical background and equally strong conclusions are presented.

Proposals of approximately 500 words (in English) and a bionote of 200 words (including author’s affiliation) should be sent to The Editors at  by 1st November 2015.

Acceptance will be notified by 15th January 2016

Completed articles to be sent by 1st March 2016

Publication date: Spring 2018
