University Multilingualism: A Critical Narrative from the University of the Western Cape, South Africa
Antia, Bassey E.
Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, v36 n6 p571-586 2015
This article offers a narrative of the University of the Western Cape, South Africa, from the prism of the duality of language as a co-modality (with people, protest, policy and practices) for constituting the institution in whole or in part and as a reflection of its co-modalities. For its framing, the narrative eclectically draws on language politics and policy, a grammar of multilingual landscapes and the epistemology of linguistics. Besides contributing to a historiography of university language policies, the narrative has implications for language policy analysis.
