Upcoming Lecture: A Political-Economy Approach to Language Rights
Prof. Jeff Bale,
Language & Literacies Education, , OISE/University of Toronto
Friday, 25 September 2015 - 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm
OLBI Research Forum

Location: 139 Louis Pasteur (map)
Room number:
286, University of Ottawa, Ottawa

There has been robust debate within political science and applied
linguistics alike about the legitimacy and viability of language
rights as a strategy for resolving language conflicts in society. This
paper introduces a political-economy approach as elaborated by Bale
(2015), Holborow (2015), and Ricento (2015) to rethink the potential
of language rights.
Jeff Bale is associate professor of Language & Literacies Education at
OISE/University of Toronto. His research focuses on language policy,
history of education, and language teacher education. His work has
appeared in Language Policy, Annual Review of Applied Linguistics, and
Teachers College Record, and he is co-editor with Sarah Knopp of
Education and Capitalism: Struggles for Leaning and Liberation
(Haymarket Books, 2012). Bale taught ESL and German for 10 years in
urban secondary schools in the United States before moving into
academic work.
This event is sponsored by the Language Management Interdisciplinary
Research Group (LMIRG).
