Conceptual and theoretical perspectives in language planning and policy: situating the ethnography of language policy

David Cassels Johnson / Thomas Ricento
Published Online: 2013-01-05 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/ijsl-2013-0002


In this article we examine the theoretical and conceptual history of Language Planning and Policy (LPP) and situate the ethnography of language policy within the historical trajectory of the field. This is offered as a reprise to Ricento's (2000a) overview of the field, in which he examined the theoretical and conceptual contributions up to 2000. We review that piece, focusing on the three major epochs that Ricento identifies, and then examine developments within LPP over the past decade, including theoretical and empirical contributions from ethnographies of language policy.

Keywords: language planning; language policy; ethnography; critical language policy; history
