Language, Schooling, and Nation-Building (3)

Course Level: Graduate

This course surveys comparative and international research on the links between language policies, language-in-education planning, and nation-building. It considers how minority or marginalized languages as well as language traditions assigned lesser prestige by national language policies influence school performance and affect classroom practices. It also examines themes of social cohesion and identity in multilingual societies. While emphasis is given to the study of low-income, or post-colonial, nations, the course also examines high-income, immigrant-receiving nations.
