Abstract:

Globalization is a complex combination of economic, social, and cultural
shifts largely carried out through language; from texts and communicative
exchanges to the orders of meaning that construct contemporary social
lives. The Handbook of Language and Globalization meets the challenges that
globalization poses to sociolinguistic theory by investigating key issues
relating to language use and development.

Comprising 36 chapters written by leading international scholars, the
volume brings together new research in the field and maps out new areas for
future research. Contributors cover such topics as tourism, language
teaching, social networking, terrorism, and religion, among many others.
The volume also illustrates critical approaches to discourse, social
semiotics, linguistic anthropology, and cultural studies. The result is a
vibrant interdisciplinary mix of articles that represents some of the most
compelling contemporary sociolinguistic research. Venturing beyond the
constraints of the typical speech community, the handbook takes steps
towards re-theorizing language in the world today.
