Title: Migration, Multilingualism, and Minorities: New Challenges for the Linguistic Sciences
Lead Author: Bhatt, Rakesh M
Abstract: One of the fundamental questions in the humanistic social sciences has to do with the understanding of the relationship between language and culture; specifically, how the social laws of linguistic conduct appear and efface as communities of different cultural practices come into direct contact with each othermore so now as globalization seems to have made geographic boundaries less relevant and global mobility more intense. In this new modern context of intense mobility, the question that seems pertinent is: What are the new paradigms of understanding of the inter-relationship of language and culture within new configurations of migration settlements? This broad research question invites several inter-related issues of language and culture: (i) how are cultural identities in transplanted contexts linguistically acquired and realized, (ii) what is the role (and nature) of linguistic practices in boundary maintenance or disruption in global, transnational, and translocal contexts, and (iii) how are local practices and processes produced by migrants and other people who cross various kinds of social, linguistic, cultural, economic and workplace borders in socially stratified and ethnically plural social settings. The challenge is to develop new theoretical and methodological perspectives that can adequately address these questions.
