Beschrijving Language, Society and Political Economy: Language and Neoliberal Governmentality

Against a background of the ongoing crisis of global capitalism and the fracturing of the neoliberal project, this book provides a detailed account of the ways in which language is profoundly imbricated in the neoliberalising of the fabric of social life.


With chapters from a cast list of international scholars, covering topics such as the commodification of education and language, unemployment and the governmentality of the self and discussion chapters from Monica Heller and Jackie Urla bringing the various strands together, the book ultimately helps us to understand how language is part of political economy and the everyday making and remaking of society and individuals. It provides both a theoretical framework and a significant methodological ‘tool-box’ to critically detect and understand the impact of neoliberalism on everyday social spheres, particularly in relation to language.


Presenting richly empirical studies that expand our understanding of how neoliberalism as a regime of truth and as a practice of governance performs within the terrain of language, this book is an essential resource for researchers and graduate students in English language, sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, linguistic anthropology and related areas.
