Abstract:

In her groundbreaking and innovative study, the author takes us on afascinating journey through some of Madrid's multilingual and multiculturalschools and reveals the role played by linguistic practices in theconstruction of inequality through such processes as what she calls"de-capitalization" and "ethnicization". Through a critical sociolinguisticand discourse analysis of the data collected in an ethnographic study, thebook shows the exclusion caused by monolingualizing tendencies andideologies of deficit in education and society.

The book opens a timely discussion of the management of diversity inmultilingual and multicultural classrooms, both for countries with a longtradition of migration flows and for those where the phenomenon isrelatively new, as is the case in Spain. This study of linguistic practicesin the classroom makes clear the need to rethink some key linguisticconcepts, such as practice, competence, discourse, and language, and tointegrate different approaches in qualitative research.

The volume is essential reading for students and researchers working insociolinguistics, education and related areas, as well as for all teachersand social workers who deal with the increasing heterogeneity of our latemodern societies in their work.
