BEF 585 / BEF 485: LANGUAGE, POLITICS, AND EDUCATION
The course will provide students a broad overview of language policy and planning: What language policy and planning are, their different foci (e.g., status, corpus, and acquisition planning), the different political tacks taken in their pursuit, and the assumptions that underlie them. This will include study of official language policies (the English-only movement in the US, official bilingualism in Canada, and the three-language Constitutional requirements in India, e.g.) and the politics of their opponents and proponents. The idea of one-nation / one-language will be deconstructed, first through the ideal of linguistic human rights, which will, in turn, be deconstructed in light of contemporary post-liberal notions of language and language policy. This political foundation will underlay later discussions of acquisition planning which will problematize the distinction between language and dialect and received notions of biliteracy/bilingualism. The course will culminate in consideration of the implications for educational policy as informed by both political theory and empirical research.
