Language, interculturality and digitality interact in many ways. As a further development of the panel “Digital Intercultural Communication” organized by the ReDICo team (as part of the section conference of the German Society for Applied Linguistics (GAL), 15 – 17.9.2021), we are now pleased to announce the completion of the volume “Language and Interculturality in the Digital World”. It is published in open access format and as an e-book in the series “Forum Angewandte Linguistik” (the Forum for Applied Linguistics).

The contributions to this volume address the blending of language, interculturality and digitality. The nine chapters investigate how (inter)culturality is manifested in various settings of digital communication – from YouTube to Tripadvisor and Twitter – and how it becomes intertwined with sets of communicative strategies and complex displays of identity.

You can look forward to contributions from: Adriana Fernandes Barbosa, Annalena Kolloch, Beatrix Kreß, Yarong Liu, Bernd Meyer, Jennifer Schluer, Tilman Schröder, as well as the members of the ReDICo team and editors of this volume: Roman Lietz, Milene Mendes de Oliveira, Luisa Conti and Fergal Lenehan.

Read the e-book.
