Abstract

LI WEI The original idea for this new publication came out of the weekly seminar series which is jointly run between Birkbeck College and the Institute of Education, both of the University of London, and the annual Round Table whose orga- nization also involves colleagues from other colleges of the University in the Bloomsbury area, especially the University College and the School of Oriental and African Studies. Given the quality and variety of the presentations at these events, we thought that it would be very nice to find an outlet for them to be published and read by a wider range of colleagues. Mouton de Gruyter enthu- siastically supported the idea and we agreed to produce an annual publication under the title The Bloomsbury Review of Applied Linguistics and Communi- cation. However, just as the papers for the inaugural issue were ready to be submitted to the publisher, the publishing giant, Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, sent us a letter through its lawyers insisting that the word “Bloomsbury” had been trademarked and therefore could not be used in any publication that they did not own.
