Book description

The Routledge Handbook of Migration and Language is the first comprehensive survey of this area, exploring language and human mobility in today’s globalised world. This key reference brings together a range of interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary perspectives, drawing on subjects such as migration studies, geography, philosophy, sociology and anthropology. Featuring over 30 chapters written by leading experts from around the world, this book:

  • Examines how basic constructs such as community, place, language, diversity, identity, nation-state, and social stratification are being retheorized in the context of human mobility;
  • Analyses the impact of the ‘mobility turn’ on language use, including the parallel ‘multilingual turn’ and translanguaging;
  • Discusses the migration of skilled and unskilled workers, different forms of displacement, and new superdiverse and diaspora communities;

  • Explores new research orientations and methodologies, such as mobile and participatory research, multi-sited ethnography, and the mixing of research methods;
  • Investigates the place of language in citizenship, educational policies, employment and social services.

The Routledge Handbook of Migration and Language is essential reading for those with an interest in migration studies, language policy, sociolinguistic research and development studies.
