Abstract:

This Oxford Handbook challenges basic concepts that have informed the study of
sociolinguistics since its inception in the 1960s. In 27 chapters, the book
challenges the modernist positivist perspective of the field that has treated
languages and speech communities as bounded and the idealized native speaker
as the ultimate authority. Instead, it offers a critical poststructuralist
perspective that examines the socio-historical context that led to the
emergence of dominant sociolinguistic concepts and develops new theoretical
and methodological tools that challenge these dominant concepts. The
contributors to this volume take this critical poststructuralist perspective
as a starting point for engaging in explorations of a range of sociolinguistic
topics including language variation, language ideologies, bi/multilingualism,
language policy, linguistic landscapes and multimodality. Each of the
contributors provides a critical overview of the limits of modernist
positivist perspectives on their topic and offer ways of theorizing and
researching their topic in ways that are aligned with a critical
poststructuralist perspective. The book also provides a global perspective on
these issues with contributors focused on North and South America, Europe,
Australia, and Africa. Together, the interdisciplinary and global
contributions reveal the limits of conventional approaches to sociolinguistics
and offer a glimpse into directions for the future of the field.
