*About the Book*
*Navigating Languages, Literacies and Identities: Religion in Young
Lives *showcases
innovative research at the interface of religion and multilingualism,
offering an analytical focus on religion in children and adolescents’
everyday lives and experiences. The volume examines the connections between
language and literacy practices and social identities associated with
religion in a variety of sites of learning and socialization, namely homes,
religious education classes, places of worship, and faith-related schools
and secular schools. Contributors engage with a diverse set of complex
multiethnic and religious communities, and investigate the rich
multilingual, multiliterate and multi-scriptal practices associated with
religion which children and adolescents engage in with a range of
mediators, including siblings, peers, parents, grandparents, religious
leaders, and other members of the religious community. The volume is
organized into three sections according to context and participants: (1)
religious practices at home and across generations, (2) religious education
classes and places of worship and (3) bridging home, school and community.
The edited book will be a valuable resource for researchers in applied
linguistics, linguistic anthropology, socio-linguistics, intercultural
communication, and early years, primary and secondary education.
