Title: European Multilingualism
Subtitle: Current Perspectives and Challenges
Written By: Rosita Rindler Schjerve
Eva Vetter

Series Title: Multilingual Matters
Description:

This book provides a broad sociolinguistic perspective on major questions of
political and cultural Europeanization. It is concerned with European
multilingualism as it actually results from the intersecting endeavour of policy
making and scientific research. This volume argues that the EU must overcome
the major discrepancies of its linguistic diversity politics by developing into a
multiple inclusive society beyond the nation-state in order to seriously unfold
European multilingualism as a political goal. Expanding on the theoretical and
methodological approaches developed within the EU project LINEE (Languages
in a Network of European Excellence), this book further focuses on the LINEE
key variables of European multilingualism i.e. 'culture', 'discourse', 'identity',
'ideology', 'knowledge', 'LPP', 'multi-competence', and 'power & conflict'. Against
this background, this study argues for reconceptualising European
multilingualism on the basis of an integrative and multi-focal approach.
