Research output: Book/ReportBook


An important feature of this book on Language, Identity and Immigration is its broad representation and international perspectives. Such variation and plurality further enhance the overall complexity of global migration, while focusing on the central role of language in the identity crises caused by innigration The book fuses theoretical discourse with an analysis of practical problems, presenting a collection of articles relevant to both researchers and practitioners. Scholars and students of social and behavioral sciences and education interested in varios aspects of human migration and its phases of cultural transition, should find this volume both enriching and rewarding. The volume consists of five different parts with the first two being devoted to the process of acculturation, the next two to processes of language maintenance and developing bilingualism, and the last focusing on the larger social context. THE sixteen articles included in the book are mostly based on presentation given at an international conference on Immigration. Language Acquisition and Patterns of Social Integration held at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in the summer of 1994, under the auspices of the NCJW Research institute for Innovation in Education.
