Title: Minority Language Media
Subtitle: Concepts, critiques and case studies
Edited By: Mike Cormack
Niamh Hourigan
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/multi/display.asp?isb=1853599638
Series Title: Multilingual Matters
Description:

Since the founding of television stations in Welsh, Catalan and Basque in
the early 1980s, minority languages have gradually gained a new prominence,
particularly in Europe. As globalisation has developed, questions
concerning such languages and the effect that the media might have on them
have become more urgent. This book is the first general study of the many
issues raised by this situation. Fourteen researchers from across Europe
and the USA examine questions such as the media needs of minority
languages, the role of the media in language maintenance, the impact of
digital media, and problems raised by translation. Case studies range from
the representativeness of drama on Welsh television to Sign Language in the
media. Taken as a whole, this book establishes the field of minority
language media studies and forms an important basis for future research.
