Abstract:

This volume argues that language, ethnicity, and identity are defined by
the circumstances under which they are created. The foundational chapter by
Joshua A. Fishman describes how language, ethnicity, and identity are
variable and changeable. The essays in the first part of the Handbook view
language and ethnic identity through the lenses of sociolinguistics,
psychology, anthropology, politics, and economics. These essays address
important topics such as diasporic languages, language and ethnic identity
near state borders, and the education of Indigenous peoples, language
minorities, and the Deaf. The second part of the Handbook views language
and ethnic identity through a regional perspective, embarking on a journey
through Europe, the Americas, Africa and the Middle East, and Asia and the
Pacific. Drawing on both historical and up-to-date accounts, these chapters
examine the relationship between constructions of language and ethnic
identity and constructions of nation-states.

Although the volume offers considerable sophistication in the treatment of
language, ethnicity and identity, it has been written for the
non-specialized reader, whether student or layperson. Written by well-known
scholars in their fields, the contributions offer a list of reference to
steer readers to crucial further readings, as well as questions for further
reflection and inquiry.
