This book, which emerges in the context of the European research networkLINEE (Languages in a Network of European Excellence), is concerned withEuropean multilingualism both as a political concept and as a socialreality. It features cutting-edge studies by linguists and anthropologistswho perceive multilingualism as a discursive phenomenon which can berevealed and analyzed through empirical fieldwork. The book presents afresh perspective of European multilingualism as it takes the readerthrough 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 wellas diversifying socio-political currents, the volume problematizes emergingcontradictions inherent in the idea of a Europe beyond the nation state -between speech minorities and majorities, economic realities, orsocio-political ideologies.
