Abstract:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced book.

Through an innovative and interdisciplinary approach that combines critical
sociolinguistic ethnography, multi-modality, reflexivity, and discourse
analysis, this groundbreaking book reveals the multiple (and sometimes
simultaneous) ways in which individuals engage and invest in
representations of languages and identities. This timely work is the first
to consider the significance of multilingualism and its relationship to
citizenship as well as the development of linguistic repertoires as an
essential component of language education in a globalized world.
While examining the discourses and interconnections between
multilingualism, globalization, and identity, the author draws upon a
unique case study of the experiences, voices, trajectories, and journeys of
Canadian youth of Italian origin from diverse social, geographical, and
linguistic backgrounds, participating in university French language courses
as well as training to become teachers of French in the urban,
multicultural and global landscape of Toronto, Canada. In doing so, Byrd
Clark skilfully illustrates the multidimensional ways that youth invest in
language learning and socially construe their multiple identities within
diverse contexts while weaving in and out of particularistic and
universalistic identifications.

This invaluable resource will not only shed light on how and why people
engage in learning languages and for which languages they choose to invest,
but will offer readers a deeper understanding of the complex
interrelationships between multilingualism, identity, and citizenship. It
will appeal to researchers in a variety of fields, including applied
linguistics, sociolinguistics, language acquisition and linguistic
anthropology.

"Julie Byrd Clark's new interdisciplinary book explores issues of
globalization, identity and language learning in new, fascinating and
challenging ways. She illuminates what it means for Italian Canadians to
learn French in a pluralistic, multilingual society and explores this
phenomenon through multiple ideologies and discourses across various
settings. This book will appeal to experienced and novice researchers from
many different fields. It's one of the most exciting, interesting, and
well-written accounts of ethnographic research I've read in a long time."

Instruction, University of Minnesota, USA
