Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users."
Languages for Intercultural Communication and Education
This book presents a new view of what it means to teach language and culture in a globalised world characterised by transnational flows of people, commodities and ideas. It contains a critical analysis of the national tradition of culture teaching as an aspect of foreign language teaching and proposes a transnational framework for language and culture pedagogy, aiming at the education of world citizens.
