This volume on Ecology of Language presents chapters on ecologies of
language, literacy and learning. The subject of language ecology is
diversity within socio-political settings where the processes of language
use create, reflect and challenge hierarchies and hegemonies.

The volume covers the following topics: *Historical and theoretical
perspectives *Language ecologies of selected countries and regions, focus
on Asia, Australia, Africa *Language ecologies of dispersed and diasporic
communities, esp. Chinese, Malay, Moroccan *Classroom language ecologies in
multilingual contexts *Language ecology of literacies, oracies and discourses

This is one of ten volumes of the Encyclopedia of Language and Education
published by Springer. The Encyclopedia bears testimony to the dynamism and
evolution of the language and education field, as it confronts the
ever-burgeoning and irrepressible linguistic diversity and ongoing
pressures and expectations placed on education around the world.
