Abstract:

In Mogadishu on the Mississippi, Martha Bigelow brings together five years
of interdisciplinary research within the Somali community in Minnesota. 
The community is a little-studied population in Minnesota, which is Somali,
Muslim, refugee, and under-schooled.  In the book, she investigates the
language learning, multiple literacy development, and schooling and
community experiences of the community and draws upon theories from the
fields of applied linguistics, second language acquisition, education, and
sociology.

Bigelow's research uses a range of epistemological frames to explore
central and contemporary problems that tie language learning to racialized,
religious, and gendered identities. It also examines the broader
experiences of minoritized and under-schooled youth in high school and
their integration into the dominant society.

In this illuminating study, Bigelow offers scholars in applied linguistics
an argument for the centrality of sociopolitical contexts in language
learning and for the integration of advocacy and research.
