Introduction and scope:
With dramatic increases in global conflict, war, drought and famine, the estimated number of refugees in need of resettlement during FY 2018 reached nearly 1.2 million and continues to rise. In response, Australia, Canada and many European and Latin American countries have launched or expanded their refugee resettlement programs. The U.S., on the other hand, has taken a large step back from its role as the world’s leader in refugee resettlement. The gap left by the U.S.’s significantly reduced role has not yet been filled (MPI 2017). Meanwhile, an explicit resistance to and hostility towards displaced persons (and the idea of demographic change) as well as a surge in far-right populism across the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union contributes to uncertainty in the policy realm, volatility in the political landscape, and unease among immigrant and refugee advocates.
This volume highlights work that demonstrates how an educational linguistics perspective might contribute to scholarship and/or educational innovations needed to advance the research base, inform professional development of teachers (in preschool, K-12, and continuing / adult education settings), and improve the educational, social and economic opportunities available to refugee-background children, youth and adults. With a focus on language learning and use among refugee-background learners across the lifespan, this proposed volume demonstrates that educational linguistics as an approach to inquiry is well positioned to identify, examine, and theorize the language and literacy dimensions of the refugee experience.
Authors are invited to explore how language ideologies, language policies, processes of language socialization, and dimensions of language use and language learning in a range of social spaces (e.g., K-12 classrooms, after-school programs, community-based programs, the workplace, spaces of healthcare delivery, online spaces, or nontraditional spaces of language use/learning) influence processes of learning, practices of teaching, and policies of language education With attention to the creative use of existing or emerging resources as well as the dynamic and social nature of language learning, this edited volume promises to contribute insights and understandings that will be of interest to socially responsible language teachers, teacher educators committed to linguistic equity and diversity, curriculum developers, or those involved with language assessment.
