Title: True to the Language Game
Subtitle: African American Discourse, Cultural Politics, and Pedagogy
Written By: Keith Gilyard
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415887175/
Description:

In "True to the Language Game", Keith Gilyard, one of the major African
American figures to emerge in language and cultural studies, makes his most
seminal work available in one volume. This collection of new and previously
published essays contains Gilyard’s most relevant scholarly contributions to
deliberations about linguistic diversity, cultural identity, critical literacy, writing
instruction, literary texts, and popular culture. The volume also features
contemporary treatises on such timely topics as "students’ right to their own
language," code-switching pedagogy, and political discourse surrounding the rise
of Barack Obama. Gilyard weaves together serious analysis, theoretical work,
policy discussions, and personal reflections on the interplay of language,
literacy, and social justice to make "True to the Language Game" essential
reading for students and scholars in rhetorical studies, composition studies,
applied linguistics, and education.
