Abstract and Keywords

This chapter focuses on the synergy that researchers in language policy
have developed by integrating two other subfields of sociolinguistics:
critical discourse analysis and critical ethnography. The chapter begins by
discussing the meanings of the three key concepts used in these approaches,
albeit sometimes in significantly different ways: critique, ethnography,
and discourse. It then examines how these concepts are relevant to
contemporary analyses of language policy, focusing particularly on their
potential to open new and innovative avenues of research. To demonstrate
how an integrated critical discourse and ethnographic approach can be
applied in concrete empirical research, the chapter presents an analysis of
language policy and practice in the European Union before providing an
overview of other relevant studies in the area.
