Song, Rayoung – CALICO Journal, 2019
Given the importance of the blogosphere for autonomous language learning, many studies on computer-assisted language learning (CALL) have vigorously investigated the use of blogs in language learning.

Hellmich, Emily A. – CALICO Journal, 2019
Despite its numerous benefits and potentialities for language learning and teaching, digital technology can also play a role in creating and maintaining inequality.

Ortega, Lourdes – Modern Language Journal, 2019
The Douglas Fir Group (2016) sought to articulate a transdisciplinary agenda for SLA but said little about multilingualism specifically. Moreover, many multilinguals are under siege in a worrisome world where threats to human difference have risen to the mainstream in the aftermath of Brexit and the 2016 U.S. presidential election. I argue that…
