Abstract

At what point do scholarship and pedagogy in sociolinguistics and language education become complicit in neoliberalism? What can researchers learn from their multilingual informants about how to resist neoliberalism? Those are central questions readers ponder as they dive into Suresh Canagarajah's logically organized and well-argued volume, Translingual Practices and Neoliberal Policies: Attitudes and Strategies of African Skilled Migrants in Anglophone Workplaces. A book that uses empirical data to support theory construction, it is written for scholars who have followed recent debates in the sociolinguistics and language education fields.
