The Oxford Handbook of Language Policy and Planning

Frost, Kelly and McNamara, Tim. "Language Tests, Language Policy, and Citizenship," in Tollefson, James W. and Pérez-Milans, Miguel (eds.,). The Oxford Handbook of Language Policy and Planning. Oxford University Press, 2018

This Handbook provides a state-of-the-art account of research in language policy and planning (LPP). Through a critical examination of LPP, the Handbook offers new direction for a field in theoretical and methodological turmoil as a result of the socio-economic, institutional, and discursive processes of change taking place under the conditions of Late Modernity... This Handbook propels the field forward, offering a dialogue between the two major historical trends in LPP associated with the processes of Modernity and Late Modernity: the focus on continuity behind the institutional policies of the modern nation-state, and the attention to local processes of uncertainty and instability across different settings resulting from processes of change. The Handbook takes great strides toward overcoming the long-standing division between "top-down" and "bottom-up" analysis in LPP research, setting the stage for theoretical and methodological innovation.
