Book Information

   

Title: The Struggle for Legitimacy
Subtitle: Indigenized Englishes in Settler Schools
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847695178
Series Title: Critical Language and Literacy Studies
Description:

This book examines the experiences of Indigenous students in settler schools
by using the example of a Canadian school as a window into the relationship
between colonial discourses, indigenized English language varieties, racialized
identities, and the biased educational practices of settler schools. The book
aims to develop awareness of the colonial past and its present-day influences
on settler schools; to take a close look at the effects of present-day settler
nationalism on constructions of race and language in settler schools; and to
explore what could be done differently to lessen present-day and future
educational inequity. The book will have great appeal to education students,
educators, teacher educators, and educational researchers in settler contexts.
