About this book: The volume, edited by Peter Pericles Trifonas
(OISE/University of Toronto) and Themistoklis Aravossitas  (DLLL/York
University & CERES/University of Toronto), covers the multidimensional and
international field of Heritage Language Education, including concepts,
practices, and the correlation between culture and language from the
perspectives of pedagogy and research. Heritage Language Learning is a new
dimension in both the linguistic and pedagogic sciences and is linked to
processes of identity negotiation and cultural inheritance. Heritage
languages play an important role ensuring the balance between coherence and
pluralism in contemporary societies that have come to realize that
diversity is an advantage for social, cultural, and economic reasons. 
The volume includes topics like First Nation indigenous languages,
languages in diaspora, immigrant and minority languages, and contributions
from North, central and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia.
It addresses the social, linguistic, and cultural issues in educational
contexts in a new way by taking up questions of globalization, difference,
community, identity, democracy, ethics, politics, technology, language
rights and cultural policies through the evolving field of Heritage
Language Education.
