Abstract:

In many parts of the world the language education scenario is increasingly
dynamic, as demographic, economic and social changes powerfully influence
socio-political agendas in the sphere of language education. These in turn
impact on complex issues such as linguistic pluralism, multiculturalism, and
marginalization. This is especially so in the sphere of second language
education where local, national and regional concerns often dominate the
objectives underpinning policy choice and prioritisation.

This volume brings together scholars and researchers from a wide range of
different educational contexts and turns a sociolinguistic lens on some of the
key areas of concern for researchers in language education: critical
awareness of power and identity issues; competence in dealing with new
sociolinguistic repertoires, modalities and literacies; ethical concerns for all
who are involved. The 'case study' approach enables the reader to reflect on
and critically engage with these issues in a rich variety of contextual
situations, and the volume as a whole provides a useful overview of (second)
language education in the world today.
