Abstract:

The studies in this volume investigate how multilingual education involves a
critical engagement with questions of identity and culture, and a movement
towards new ways of being and belonging. It addresses previously
under-explored issues, in particular the integration of theories like
‘thirdness’, and practices of language education and maintenance with
relevance to the Asia-Pacific region. The analyses reveal the delicate balance
of interests of all stakeholders and offer detailed insights into the reality
of multilingual education, with specific examples of Chinese, English,
Japanese and Tamil. In a globalised world, effective language education has
become increasingly important, and the studies presented here have the
potential to inform and advance evidence-based multilingual education through
adding important dimensions of theoretical exploration and fresh empirical
resources.
