Multilingualism, Identity and Interculturality in Education
|PRODUCT TYPE||Paperback (Paperback)|
This book brings together research on multilingualism, identity and intercultural understanding from a range of locations across the globe to explore the intersection of these key ideas in education. It addresses the need to better understand how multilingual, identity, and intercultural approaches intersect for multilingual learners in complex and varied settings. Through global examples, it explores how identities and multilingualism are situated within, and surrounding intercultural experiences. This book examines the different theoretical interpretations as encountered and used in different contexts. By doing so, it helps readers better understand how teachers approach multilingualism and diversity in a range of contexts.
"This landmark volume challenges us to engage personally with the real-life situations of people's experience, in the intersection between their multilingualism, their identity and their intercultural understanding. The exploration of this intersection in different global contexts breaks new ground in research and theory. I am excited by the many new implications and rich learning that this work will support, in education. The volume displays indepth understanding of its three key concepts and it proposes stimulating new ideas of the relationship between them. With its capacity to change perceptions and understanding, it needs to be required reading on many university reading lists!"
