Title: Bilingual Pre-Teens
Subtitle: Competing Ideologies and Multiple Identities in the U.S. and Germany
Written By: Janet M. Fuller
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415807289/
Series Title: Routledge Studies in Sociolinguistics
Description:

This volume examines the connection between socio-economic class and
bilingual practices, a previously under-researched area, through looking at
differences in bilingual settings that are classified as "immigrant" or "elite" and
are thus linked to socio-economic class categories. Fuller chooses for this
examination bilingual pre-teen children in Germany and the U.S. in order to
demonstrate how local identities are embedded in a wider social world and how
ideologies and identities both produce and reproduce each other. In so doing,
she argues that while pre-teen children are clearly influenced by macro-level
ideologies, they also have agency in how they choose to construct their
identities with relation to hegemonic societal discourses, and have many other
motivations and identities aside from social class membership which shape
their linguistic practices.
