Course Syllabus

Abstract

The aim of the course is to introduce students to a range of approaches within the field of language planning and policy and to link these with a variety of practical implications. More specifically, this course provides students with an awareness and understanding of the importance of the three inter-related but independent components of language policy and planning: (1) actual practice, (2) beliefs and values, and (3) language management. Students will critically engage with theoretical considerations of language rights, nationalism, standardisation, ideology, and language endangerment. The impact of language policy in micro and macro contexts will also be addressed, with regional, educational, institutional, national, and transnational perspectives.
Learning Objectives

Learning Objectives

  • Students will be guided towards in-depth reading on the topics and given the opportunity to develop their the skills of analysis and synthesis of theoretical and methodological issues. Students will also be equipped with the core analytical skills necessary to engage in research on language planning and policy, including data collection, analysis and presentation. By the end of the course, students will be able to demonstrate a broad understanding of the main issues in language policy and planning, and an understanding of the complex factors that go into language planning decisions at local, national and international levels.
