The Oxford Handbook of Language Policy and Planning

Edited by James W. Tollefson and Miguel Pérez-Milans

Oxford Handbooks

  • Offers a history of language policy and planning (LPP) and articulates directions for future research
  • Analyzes alternative theoretical and conceptual frameworks in LPP, with an emphasis on recent developments such as ethnography in LPP, historical-discursive approaches, ethics and normative theory, and the renewed focus on socio-economic class
  • Overcomes the long-standing division between "top-down" and "bottom-up" analysis in LPP research, setting the stage for theoretical and methodological innovation
