Title: Multilingual Europe: Reflections on Language and Identity
Edited By: HeatherMerleBenbow
Description:

As Europe continues to expand and integrate through the European Union, it
faces the challenge of ever increasing multilingual and multicultural
contact, within and across its borders. This volume presents recent
research on European language policy, language contact and multiculturalism
that explores how Europe is meeting this challenge. Inspired by
intersections and conflicts in language and cultural identity in Europe,
the volume transcends disciplinary boundaries by enhancing sociolinguistic
research with chapters on cultural identity and language in contemporary
European cinema. The book considers the relationships between language and
cultural identity in Europe at a time of increasing multicultural
complexity, with contributions on Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the
Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and Ukraine, and the linguistic and imaginative
spaces between and beyond. The volume highlights the ongoing significance
of language and identity for an expanding Europe, and the ways in which
situations of linguistic hybridity, interlocution and language contact
continue to define Europe and its others.
