This monograph will report on the results of a series of case studies conducted across several campuses of the City University of New York within a university-sponsored project entitled Futures Initiative (FI). The FI project advocates for greater equity and innovation in higher education through several actions, including research and student and teacher development initiatives. In this monograph, the authors of the contributions came together in an interdisciplinary doctoral seminar on educational language policy, which was chosen to take on an active role in the FI project. The seminar was led by Dr. Ofelia García and Dr. Carmina Makar.

Portolés: La censura de la palabra

Publicado en Publicaciones

censura palabraPortolés, José: La censura de la palabra. Estudio de pragmática y análisis del discurso. Publicacions Universitat de València, 2016.

Todos censuramos. La censura no es un fenómeno limitado a ciertos sistemas políticos, sino un comportamiento habitual en la interacción comunicativa. Censura quien trata de impedir o castigar aquello que otros desean comunicar y que considera amenazante para su ideología. Encontramos censuras oficiales, otras grupales o por adición, así como también censura de formulación.

Este volumen pretende sistematizar las distintas posibilidades de la censura a partir de los instrumentos teóricos que aportan la pragmática y el análisis del discurso, y mediante su índice temático, se convierte en una pequeña enciclopedia de la censura en España. Una obra de interés para los lingüistas estudiosos del análisis del discurso, para los profesionales de las Ciencias de la Comunicación y para quienes se preocupan por la libertad de expresión y sus limitaciones.

Blackwood, Lanza, Woldemariam (eds.): Negotiating and Contesting Identities in Linguistic Landscapes

Publicado en Publicaciones

Negotiating identitiesBlackwood, Robert; Lanza, Elizabeth; Woldemariam, Hirut (eds). Negotiating and Contesting Identities in Linguistic Landscapes. Bloomsbury Academic, 2016.

This collection represents contemporary perspectives on important aspects of research into the language in the public space, known as the Linguistic Landscape[1] (LL), with the focus on the negotiation and contestation of identities.

From four continents, and examining vital issues across North America, Africa, Europe and Asia, scholars with notable experience in LL research are drawn together in this, the latest collection to be produced by core researchers in this field. Building on the growing published body of research into LL work, the fifteen data chapters test, challenge and advance this sub-field of sociolinguistics through their close examination of languages as they appear on the walls and in the public spaces of sites from South Korea to South Africa, from Italy to Belarus, from Addis Ababa to Zanzibar. The geographic coverage is matched by the depth of engagement with developments in this burgeoning field of scholarship. As such, this volume is an up-to-date collection of research chapters, each of which addresses pertinent and important issues within their respective geographic spaces.

Rodríguez Betancourt: Judith Ortiz Cofer and Aurora Levins Morales. The Construction of Identity through Cultural and Linguistic Hybridization

Publicado en Publicaciones

Rodríguez Betancourt, J.: Judith Ortiz Cofer and Aurora Levins Morales. The Construction of Identity through Cultural and Linguistic Hybridization, LINCOM Studies in Language and Culture, 2016.

This investigation examines how the Third Space of enunciation as defined by Homi Bhabha as an “in between space” that carries the load of cultural meaning, becomes the site to negotiate and construct identity through cultural and linguistic hybridization in Judith Ortiz Cofer’s Silent Dancing: A Partial Remembrance of a Puerto Rican Childhood and segments written by Aurora Levins Morales in Getting Home Alive. Ortiz Cofer and Levins Morales construct Diasporican hybrid identities in a transnational context through their use of language and cultural expressions. The Third Space of enunciation becomes the site of cultural and linguistic exchanges, struggles, negotiations, and ultimately acceptance of their hybrid selves.
 
In this space, readers witness an intra-cultural dialogue between the competing cultures and within these exchanges and negotiations; language is utilized as a means of expression and is intentionally or unintentionally employed. Although Ortiz Cofer and Levins Morales write in accurate Standard American English, their writings are infused with Spanish words and expressions. The use of these words and expressions provides a link to their memories of their Puerto Rican cultural and linguistic capital. A close examination of the use of these culturally charged Spanish words or phrases reveals interesting details that include providing translations, code-switching, linguistic calques, or omissions of their meanings altogether as a technique to privilege the bilingual reader and perhaps penalize the Anglo reader’s lack of knowledge of Puerto Rican linguistic and cultural capital.

Martín Rojo (ed.). Occupy. The spatial dynamics of discourse in global protest movements

Publicado en Publicaciones

bct 83 hbMartín Rojo, Luisa (ED.): Occupy. The spatial dynamics of discourse in global protest movements. John Benjamins, 2016.

Large-scale protest movements have recently transformed urban common spaces into sites of resistance. The Arab Spring, the European Summer, the American Fall in 2011, the revolts in India and South Africa and, more recently, in Istanbul, in several cities in Brazil, and in Hong Kong, are part of a common wave of protests which reclaims squares and urban places, monumentally designed as political and economic centres, as places for discussion and decision-making, for increasing participation and intervention in the governance of the community. Through banners and signs, open assemblies, and other communicative practices in the encampments and interconnecting physical and virtual spaces, participants permanently reconfigure their lived spaces discursively. The attempt to account for on-going social phenomena from the moment they first happen, and with an international perspective, undoubtedly represents a theoretical and methodological challenge. This book is a successful and innovative attempt to address this challenge, capturing the complex interplay between social, spatial, and communicative practices, drawing on complementary and alternative methods. Originally published in Journal of Language and Politics issue 13:4 (2014).

Massip i Bastardas (eds.): Complèxica. Cervell, societat i llengua des de la transdisciplinarietat

Publicado en Publicaciones

complexicaMassip, À. i Bastardas, A. (eds.): COMPLÈXICA. Cervell, societat i llengua des de la transdisciplinarietat, Barcelona: Publicacions de la Universitat de Barcelona, 2015.

El triangle llengua-comunicació-societat emmarca els fenòmens més característics del pla sociohumà i, per avançar en el coneixement del seu funcionament, cal desafiar les aproximacions tradicionals i les més formalitzadores a favor d’enfocaments complèxics, transdisciplinaris i qualitatius integrats.

Atesa la gran diversitat cognitiva i cultural dels humans, com també de les seves especificitats emocionals i comportamentals, tenim el repte d’intentar construir un cos teòric i metodològic adequat a les propietats característiques dels fenòmens humans per avançar cap a una sociocomplexitat cognitivoemotiva.

Aquest volum vol posar en relació el cervell, la societat i la llengua, tres sistemes complexos adaptatius íntimament imbricats que són a la base de la comunicació humana. La principal aportació de l’obra rau en el fet que els autors aborden diverses temàtiques des d’una visió holística i complèxica emfasitzant les interrelacions i els fenòmens emergents.
