Abstract:

This volume inserts the place of the local in theorizing about language
policies and practices in applied linguistics. While the effects of
globalization around the world are being discussed in such diverse circles
as corporations, law firms, and education, and while the spread of English
has come to largely benefit those in positions of power, relatively little
has been said about the impact of globalization at the local level,
directly or indirectly. "Reclaiming the Local in Language Policy and
Practice" is unique in focusing specifically on the outcomes of
globalization in and among the communities affected by these changes. The
authors make a case for why it is important for local social practices,
communicative conventions, linguistic realities, and knowledge paradigms
to actively inform language policies and practices for classrooms and
communities in specific contexts, and to critically inform those pertaining
to other communities. They illuminate the paradox that the local contains
complex values of diversity, multilingualism, and plurality that can
help to reconceive the multilingual society and education for postmodern times.
