SLA232H1: Language, Politics, Identity



In this course we will examine the multi-faceted nature of language policy, language standardization, language contact, language maintenance, language conflict and language loss. In addition, we will explore issues such as language rights, languages of education and linguistic identity. While the focus will be on languages in the Slavic, East European, Nordic and Baltic regions, the discourse in this class will also relate to a broad range of language issues globally.
