Special Issue for Foreign Language Studies


AI and Writing

Guest Editors:

Abstract Submission Deadline: 31 March 2024

Since the release of ChatGPT by OpenAI in November 2022, generative artificial intelligence (AI) has garnered widespread attention globally. This powerful generative capability has sparked discussions about its potential benefits and challenges in writing research, practice, and education. On the downside, an over-dependence on generative AI may lead to neglecting essential writing, reading, and thinking skills. This could potentially undermine the importance of writing or language studies and exacerbate linguistic injustice. On the upside, when used appropriately, generative AI can serve as a supportive digital tool to enhance writing education and research. Therefore, educators, students, and practitioners are urged to critically use and evaluate content produced by AI tools (MLA-CCCC, 2023).

This special issue of Foreign Language Studies, slated for release in December 2025, will be dedicated to exploring issues, challenges, and practices associated with generative AI in writing practice, research, and education. Submissions addressing the following topics, but are not limited to them, are invited: 

  • Tools & Technologies: Examination of AI-driven writing tools. How are they changing the process of writing, editing, and publishing?
  • Ethical and Social Implications: What are the societal consequences of AI-driven writing? Considerations might include authorship, authenticity, misinformation, and ethical considerations in AI content generation.
  • Future Directions: Speculative pieces on where AI and writing might be headed. What innovations can we expect in the next decade?
  • Pedagogical Implications: How can educators integrate AI tools into the writing classroom? What are the benefits and challenges?
  • Creative Outputs: Exploring the artistic dimensions of AI and writing. This could include AI-generated poetry, stories, or collaborative pieces between humans and AI.

Contributors are welcome to address issues or topics not listed above. We also encourage contributions related to professional development in languages other than English. For inquiries and abstract submissions, please contact the co-editors: Yachao Sun (ys302@duke.edu) and Ge Lan (gelan4@cityu.edu.hk).
