English as a Local Language: Post-colonial Identities and Multilingual Practices

Christina Higgins

Language: English

Pages: 176

ISBN: B005QMPF20

Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub


This book explores how multilingualism involving English is ordered in post-colonial, globalizing societies. By placing multilingual practices at the theoretical center, the author investigates a range of sociolinguistic domains to demonstrate how individuals use English as a local resource alongside other languages in East Africa to produce an array of local and global identifications.
