Interesting book series on diversity

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

I have long been interested in Language & Development and Linguistic Rights (and very sorry to miss this year’s Language & Development conference) and was therefore interested to be given a brochure at the recent TBLT conference in Lancaster on a book series called ‘Encounters, Language and Diversity’, edited by Jan Blommaert, Ben Rampton, Marco Jacquement, Anna de Fina and Norman Joergensen. It includes books on topics such as linguistic rights, ‘the asylum speaker’, language in African education, and other topics at the crossroads of linguistics, communication, culture, law and other disciplines. You can find more information here.
