Abstract:

This book explores neoliberalism - a view of the world that puts the market at
its centre- from the perspective of applied linguistics.

"Neoliberalism and Applied Linguistics" argues that while applied linguistics
has become more interdisciplinary in orientation, it has ignored or downplayed
the role of political economy, namely the way in which social, political and
economic factors relate to one another within the context of a capitalist
economy. The authors take the view that engagement with political economy
is central to any fully rounded analysis of language and language-related
issues in the world today and their collaboration in this volume represents an
initial attempt to redress what they perceive to be an imbalance in the field.

The book begins with a discussion of neoliberalism and an analysis of the
ways in which neoliberal ideology impacts on language. This is followed by a
discussion of how globalization and identity have been conceptualised in
applied linguistics in ways which have ignored the political centrality of class
- a concept which the authors see as integral to their perspective. The book
concludes with an analysis of the ways in which neoliberal ideology plays out
in two key areas of applied linguistics - language teaching and language
teacher education.

"Neoliberalism and Applied Linguistics" is essential reading for advanced
undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in applied linguistics.
