The volume highlights the role of language ideologies in the process
of negotiation of identities and shows that in different historical
and social contexts different identities may be negotiable or
non-negotiable. The chapters address various ways in which individuals
may be positioned or position themselves in a variety of contexts. In
asking questions about social justice, about who has access to
symbolic and material resources, about who is 'in' and who is 'out',
the authors take account not only of localised linguistic behaviours,
attitudes and beliefs; they also locate them in wider social contexts
which include class, race, ethnicity, generation, gender and
sexuality. The volume makes a significant contribution to the
development of theory in understanding identity negotiation and social
justice in multilingual contexts.
