American University Sociologist Starts Up New e-Journal on Language

Celine-Marie Pascale, an associate professor of sociology at American University in Washington, D.C., is currently serving as president of the Language and Society Committee of the International Sociology Association. Her committee is about to launch a new online journal, Language, Discourse & Society. The new journal will be published in French, English, and Spanish.

Professor Pascale sits on the editorial review board of the new journal. She states, “The language we use both reflects and shapes the kind of world we create around us. One person’s terrorist is another person’s freedom fighter. I hope that the journal becomes a home for very rich debates about both the theory and methods used to study language. We want it to become a vibrant, intellectual home for international scholars who are engaged in sociological analysis of systems of signification, how things become meaningful.

Dr. Pascale is the author of three books: Making Sense of Race, Gender and Class: Commonsense, Power and Privilege in the United States (Routledge, 2007); Cartographies of Knowledge: Exploring Qualitative Epistemologies (Sage, 2010); and Inequality & The Politics of Representation: A Global Landscape which will be published next year.

Dr. Pascale is a graduate of Glassboro State College (now Rowan University) in New Jersey and holds a master’s degree from San Jose State University and a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of California at Santa Cruz.
