Rethinking Heritage Language Education

Congratulations to Themis Aravossitas who just published a co-edited volume with Cambridge University Press (together with Peter Pericles Trifonas). Rethinking Heritage Language Education brings together emerging and established researchers in the field of Heritage Language Education to negotiate concepts and practices, and investigate the correlation between culture, language and identity from a pedagogic and socio-political point of view.The book addresses the multilingual context of education in different national and international settings, including issues of main-streaming plurilingualism, identifying ideologies of pedagogical practice, mapping cultural and linguistic assets and empowering learners, teachers and communities. Rethinking Heritage Language Education re-examines the dimensions of traditional interpretations of language education in relation to the principles of equity, social justice, and linguistic rights in the new millennium.
