Asserting "Needs" and Claiming "Rights": The Cultural Politics of Community Language Education in England.
Hall, Kathleen
Journal of Language, Identity, and Education, v1 n2 p97-119 2002
Discusses the paradox involved in constructing a language policy: language is invoked as a reified object associated with essentialist constructs of identity to stand for much more complex and changing patterns of language use. Considers this paradox from the perspective of a campaign led by Sikh parents to have Punjabi introduced into curriculum in secondary school in Leeds, England. (Author/VWL)
