Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users."
This volume is the first in a new working papers series initiated by the Indiana University Linguistics Club and the Department of Linguistics at Indiana University - Bloomington to showcase the research of our students, faculty and alumni.
