Beschrijving Studies in Contemporary Russia: The Soft Power of the Russian Language

Exploring Russian as a pluricentric language, this book provides a panoramic view of its use within and outside the nation and discusses the connections between language, politics, ideologies and cultural contacts.


Russian is widely used across the former Soviet republics and in the diaspora, but speakers outside Russia deviate from the metropolis in their use of the language and their attitudes towards it. Using country case-studies from across the former Soviet Union and beyond, the contributors analyse the unifying role of the Russian language for developing transnational connections and show its value in the knowledge economy. They demonstrate that centrifugal developments of Russian and its pluricentricity are grounded in the language and education policies of their host countries, as well as the goals and functions of cultural institutions, such as schools, media, travel agencies and others created by émigrés for their co-ethnics. This book also reveals the tensions between Russia’s attempts to homogenize the 'Russian world' and the divergence of regional versions of Russian reflecting cultural hybridity of the diaspora. 


Interdisciplinary in its approach, this book will prove useful to researchers of Russian and Post-Soviet politics, Russian Studies, Russian Language and Culture, linguistics, and immigration studies. Those studying multilingualism and heritage language teaching may also find it interesting.
