Semester 2, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Neil MacLean

Description

The unit: (1) reviews the importance of language policy issues (variation, multilingualism and standardisation); education, planning and the functions of literacy) for development from the perspective of a sociology of language; (2) using Asian case studies explores development as a culturally specific response to modernisation and globalisation, two processes heavily shaped by Western ideology and interests; and (3) links the two themes through an exploration of the role of mass and state media in the process of modernisation and cultural revival.
