Sociolinguistic Perspectives on Migration Control : Language Policy, Identity and Belonging, Paperback / softback Book

Sociolinguistic Perspectives on Migration Control : Language Policy, Identity and Belonging Paperback / softback

Edited by Markus Rheindorf, Ruth Wodak

Part of the Language, Mobility and Institutions series

Description

In the midst of an international crisis in migration policy - widely referred to as a 'refugee crisis' - this book brings together timely analyses of the manifold and yet specific ways in which migration affects globalized societies, set against the background of the rise of nationalist and populist movements.

The voices of migrants and refugees are rarely heard in this context: usually, they are debated about, summarized and reported but their agency is denied.

Each contribution to this volume adds an empirical perspective to our understanding of how language relates to migration in a specific national context.

The chapters use innovative combinations of multimodal, qualitative and quantitative analyses to examine a broad range of genres and data related to the voices of migrants and reporting about migrants.
