In Ireland, there is also the Centre for Applied Language Studies at the University of Limerick, which has a research area in pluralism and language policy:



See especially Helen Kelly-Holmes and Máiréad Moriarty who do work on LPP and new media as well as David Atkinson and John Shaun Nolan who do work on LPP in Spain and France, respectively.

Dear Colleagues,


It's great to see the snowballing references to language policy work leading to a Ph.D., so thanks for all the listings.


They lead me to mention that we also do work in this area in the Centre for Language and Communication Studies in Trinity College Dublin. As in the UK, the Ph.D. here is done on the basis of a research thesis, which in our case can run to a maximum of 100,000 words of text and takes 3 or 4 years to complete. There is no associated coursework required, and students work with a research supervisor. Our webpage lists some of the areas where we have people who do research in langauge planning and policy:


http://www.tcd.ie/slscs/clcs/research/areas.php#languagepolicy .


Although the information here is not complete and is a little bit out of date (we are working on this!), it gives a general idea of areas we work in: a range of things having to do with Irish language policy in an educational or comparative European perspective, policy evaluation, policy with regard to immigration and language provision, etc. I currently supervise two Ph.D. students who work, broadly speaking, in the LP area, one on the revitalisation of Occitan, another on the status of Irish Travellers and language. We also have a small but very active Centre for Deaf Studies, which gets involved in matters having to do with language policy and Irish Sign Language in particular, and with the status of signed languages more generally.


At Masters level, we have programmes which do involve taught courses as well as a shorter research dissertation. Modules within these programmes sometimes take students into language policy areas, in particular the course on 'Bilingualism and the Maintenance of Irish' taught by John Harris; we have had a few students do dissertations in areas such as Linguistic Landscape (a recent study looked at language policy in Galicia and its relationship to signage), language teaching provision for immigrant languages, and educational provision for Irish. Information on the Masters programmes is available from
