Synopsis

The subject of this book is linguistic minorities and social change, seen through the lens of a linguistic minority school, meeting the challenges of globalization. This is a core topic for sociolinguists, linguistic anthropologists, applied linguists and educators who are concerned about what multilingualism means in today's world. Through a careful examination of the language practices in the daily life of a minority language school, Monica Heller explores issues such as nationalism, language policy, bilingualism, identity, power, ideology, race, class, gender and sexuality, exploring their role in the increasing commodification of identity and language. "Linguistic Minorities and Modernity" has been revised throughout, and includes a new preface by the author.
