Plurilingualism and Language Policy

Globalizing Language Policy and Planning: An Irish Language Perspective by Dr Máiréad Moriarty (Palgrave-MacMillan, 2015)

Plurilingualism and Language Policy is one of the three core areas of strength of the Centre for Applied Language Studies, and Dr Máiréad Moriarty’s recent volume entitled Globalizing Language Policy and Planning: An Irish Language Perspective is a key contribution to cutting-edge research in this area. Published in Palgrave-MacMillan’s Language and Globalization series, her book examines the changing value and function of minority languages and what this may mean for future efforts to revive the Irish language. The book provides an account of four sites of minority language use including television, comedy, Hip Hop, and tourism. Each of these sites represents domains in which the use of Irish has changed significantly as a consequence of processes of globalization.
