Announcing a new book, *Indigenous Language Revitalization in the Americas,
* edited by Serafín Coronel-Molina and Teresa L. McCarty (
https://www.routledge.com/Indigenous-Language-Revitalization-in-the-Americas/Coronel-Molina-McCarty/p/book/9780415810814):


Focusing on the Americas – home to 40 to 50 million Indigenous people –
this book explores the history and current state of Indigenous language
revitalization across this vast region. Complementary chapters on the USA
and Canada, and Latin America and the Caribbean, offer a panoramic view
while tracing nuanced trajectories of "top down" (official) and "bottom up"
(grass roots) language planning and policy initiatives. Authored by leading
Indigenous and non-Indigenous scholars, the book is organized around seven
overarching themes: Policy and Politics; Processes of Language Shift and
Revitalization; The Home-School-Community Interface; Local and Global
Perspectives; Linguistic Human Rights; Revitalization Programs and Impacts;
New Domains for Indigenous Languages. Providing a comprehensive,
hemisphere-wide scholarly and practical source, this singular collection
simultaneously fills a gap in the language revitalization literature and
contributes to Indigenous language revitalization efforts.
