9780933452619: Regimes of Language: Ideologies, Polities, and Identities (School of American Research Advanced Seminar Series)

This volume brings together some of the leading scholars in language ideology research. Their essays contribute to an understanding of the role of language ideologies and discursive practices in state formation, nationalism, and the maintenance of ethnic groups, on the one hand, and in the creation of national, ethnic, and professional identities, on the other. The essays include reflexive analyses of European language philosophy and historical linguistics, US academic ideologies of language, political discourses by journalists and elite image advisors, and the impact of missionary-introduced literacy on indigenous peoples.

About the Author:

Paul V. Kroskrity is Professor of Anthropology at the University of California, Los Angeles, and coeditor of "Native American Language Ideologies: Beliefs, Practices, and Struggles in Indian Country."

Review:

The authors advance the study of language ideologies with a cluster of important notions. The eight essays in this volume proceed from macrolevel studies to more microlevel analyses. Although nationalist ideologies in state formation and in scholarly representations are emphasized in many essays, several authors document their claims with microinteractional analysis and transcripts and examine how language users awareness shapes their linguistic practice, helping to reproduce or transform linguistic and social structures. --Miki Makihara, American Ethnologist, vol. 29, no. 1, Feb. 2002

An important addition to the growing literature on language ideology . . . This book richly deserves to be read and studied by a wide audience of anthropologists, linguists, rhetoricians, sociologists, cultural theorists, and political scientists. --Talbot J. Taylor, Language in Society Vol. 31, no. 2 (2002)

The studies in this volume offer new and original work that will help develop research agendas in this important, emergent field. --Jacqueline Urla, University of Massachusetts
