About this book

This book explores the dynamics of the linguistic landscape as a site of conflict, exclusion, and dissent. It focuses on socio-historical, economic, political and ideological issues, such as reflected in mass protest demonstrations, to forge links between landscape, identity, social justice and power.

Reviews

“This collection of essays on Linguistic Landscape (LL) research is organised around the theme of LL as a site of contestation. … This interesting volume is organised around an important and highly pertinent set of themes. … its breadth of discussions, most of which are not only thought-provoking but help LL study further establish itself within sociolinguistics.” (Robert Blackwood, Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, 2016)
