Series Title: Contributions to the Sociology of Language [CSL] 97
Description:

This book, which emerges in the context of the European research network
LINEE (Languages in a Network of European Excellence), is concerned with
European multilingualism both as a political concept and as a social
reality. It features cutting-edge studies by linguists and anthropologists
who perceive multilingualism as a discursive phenomenon which can be
revealed and analyzed through empirical fieldwork. The book presents a
fresh perspective of European multilingualism as it takes the reader
through key themes of social consciousness – identity, policy, education,
economy – and relevant societal levels of organization (European, national,
regional).

With its distinct focus on post-national society caught in unifying as well
as diversifying socio-political currents, the volume problematizes emerging
contradictions inherent in the idea of a Europe beyond the nation state –
between speech minorities and majorities, economic realities, or
socio-political ideologies.
