I invite you to contribute a chapter to an edited volume: MULTILINGUALISM AND EDUCATION IN AFRICA: PRACTICES AND CHALLENGES which I am a co-editor, alongside Prof Daniel Orwenjo, Dr. Ruth Ndungu and Prof. Phyllis Mwangi.

The book seeks to have a collection of chapters addressing the twin issues of Multilingualism and Education in any African country. Although our focus would be on the practices and challenges found in many African countries, any high quality contribution that looks at multilingualism and education from any other dimension would also be welcome.

Cambridge Scholars Publishers have agreed to publish the book. All contributions would be peer reviewed on a double blind basis. Should you accept our invitation, we would be happy to receive a 500 word abstract of your paper by January 20th, 2012 and the first draft of your chapter by February 25th, 2012.

Best Regards,
Dr. Martin C. Njoroge
