On the Margins of Nations: Endangered Languages and Linguistic Rights : proceedings of the eighth FEL Conference : Barcelona (Catalonia), Spain, 1-3 October 2004 / editors: Joan A. Argenter & R. McKenna Brown

Date of publication: 2004

Publisher: Bath, Foundation for Endangered Languages. Conference (8th)

 Keywords: Linguistic minorities  – Conferences /Linguistic minorities- Law and legislation – Conferences

Proceedings of the 8th FEL Conference: ‘On the Margins of Nations: Endangered languages and Linguistic Rights’.

Despite the broadness of its title, the books addresses three main issues:

1) Linguistic policies from bottom-up activism to top-down institutional policies: how are linguistic rights recognised and, if necessary, enforced? How can communities act to protect them?

2) Interaction between the global and the local in terms of linguistic rights —international, national and local: to what extent are national policies consistent with universal declarations and international treaties? How are identities re-defined in post-nationalist discourses?

3) Crossing of boundaries between endangered languages and linguistic rights: which rights have to be kept and which obligations have to be accepted in diasporas, in divided linguistic communities and in places where languages are spoken by a group of immigrant people?
