The International Society for Language Studies, Inc.

is a Delaware Corporation recognized by the United States Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)6 non-profit trade association.  The International Society for Language Studies (ISLS) was created in 2002 by scholars united in their goal to have a forum encouraging and disseminating post-positivistic research in languages matters, broadly conceived. Prior to the founding of ISLS such research was presented in venues primarily designed for applied linguistics, educational studies, language-specific concerns, literary criticism, anthropology, sociology, history, or similar disciplines. ISLS seeks to bring together scholars from research disciplines whose research has been on issues of language studies.  We hold bi-annual conferences and sponsor a number of publication initiatives to strengthen research in critical language studies.  In addition, our members have published extensively on issues in language studies.  To see examples of our work, click here.
