A topical and authoritative investigation of the Irish language and identity in Northern Ireland. The phrase 'our own language' has come to symbolize the importance of the Irish language to Irish identity for many Nationalists in Northern Ireland. However, different interests compete to have their version of the meaning and importance of the Irish language accepted. This book investigates the role of the Irish language movement in the social construction of competing versions of Irish political and cultural identity in Northern Ireland, arguing that for some Nationalists, the Irish language has become an alternative point of political access and expression.

Redefining Tandem Language and Culture Learning in Higher Education provides an overview of a specific type of learning, called tandem language and culture learning, which was created and developed in Europe after the Second World War, before reaching other continents. Through focusing on higher education, the authors demonstrate how, despite institutional constraints, language educators can make better use of this practice in such contexts as internationalisation, physical and virtual mobility, lifelong learning and intercultural education. This book comprises 16 chapters which examine how tandem language and culture learning is currently being institutionalised in higher education thus showing how the founding principles of the tandem approach have been revisited, which learning outcomes (intercultural, linguistic, professional) tandem learning may bring about, and which key issues must be addressed (assessment, counselling, resources) when setting up tandem programmes. The various contributions present up-to-date tandem studies from both European and non-European perspectives. Highlighting tandem learning’s potential to promote multilingual and multicultural learning on a global scale, this volume will be of particular interest to students and researchers in intercultural communication, language education, multilingualism, and applied linguistics.

The expression our own language illustrates the significance of the Irish language for many among the nationalist community in Northern Ireland.
Author: Lisa Goldenberg
Publisher: Studies in Ecumenics, Reconcil
The expression our own language illustrates the significance of the Irish language for many among the nationalist community in Northern Ireland. They regard the neglect of the language by unionist administrations since the 1920s as another part of the attempted anglicisation of Ireland, and part of the justification for their continued opposition to the union. As a result, Irish has come to be seen as a symbol of resistance, anti-Britishness, liberation and nationalism.

In this book, Aidan Doyle traces the history of the Irish language from the time of the Norman invasion at the end of the 12th century to independence in 1922, combining political, cultural, and linguistic history. The book is divided into seven main chapters that focus on a specific period in the history of the language; they each begin with a discussion of the external history and position of the Irish language in the period, before moving on to investigate the important internal changes that took place at that time. A History of the Irish Language makes available for the first time material that has previously been inaccessible to students and scholars who cannot read Irish, and will be a valuable resource not only for undergraduate students of the language, but for all those interested in Irish history and culture.
"Translating Ireland explores centuries of translation activity during which the languages, cultures and literatures of Ireland have been affected by the work of Irish translators in Ireland and elsewhere.
Author: Michael Cronin
"Translating Ireland explores centuries of translation activity during which the languages, cultures and literatures of Ireland have been affected by the work of Irish translators in Ireland and elsewhere. Translation in Ireland has functioned as a weapon of political propaganda, an agent of linguistic reform, and a catalyst for cultural renewal and yet the activity of translators during often controversial circumstances has remained unacknowledged." "In this pioneering study Michael Cronin examines the widespread translation activity in Ireland in the Middle Ages and argues for a re-evaluation of the work of translators from that period. He then examines the central role of translation in the political and cultural upheaval of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, particularly the theoretical responses of translators to changing political conditions. Antiquarianism, the Celtic Revival and emergent nationalism in the nineteenth century are all bound up with the act of translation and Translating Ireland analyses the tensions and competing cultural allegiances of translators in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Literary revival in both English and Irish looked to translation as a source of a creative energy and the new state saw translation as both necessary and desirable. There is an analysis of the fortunes of translation in Ireland in the twentieth century, both as pragmatic activity in an officially bilingual state and as a way of opening the languages and literatures of Ireland to the literatures and cultural experiences of other peoples." "Translating Ireland examines what happens in the contact zone between languages and how translation affects both the development of language and literature and the construction of identity. In a country that has witnessed radical changes in language use over the centuries, translation has become an important element in political, linguistic and cultural self-knowledge."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Author: Alan Titley
A lively journey through ancient and modern Irish culture, this book explores the elements that have shaped the music, language, and arts of the Emerald Isle. From the rich native tradition in pre-Christian times to the changes wrought by the arrival of Christianity in the fifth century, from the Golden Age of art and literature to the 19th-century Celtic revival, the rich history of Ireland is abundant in its cultural heritage. Also discussed is the place of Irish writing in the English language and a look at the international popularity of modernized traditional dances, as expressed by the Riverdance craze.

Author: Stephen May
In this provocative and ground-breaking book, Stephen May argues for a non-essentialist understanding of language rights, while at the same time outlining why language rights, particularly for minority groups, are defensible and important, both academically and politically. May argues that the causes of many of the language-based conflicts in the world today lie with the nation-state and its preoccupation with establishing a 'common' language and culture via mass education. The solution, he suggests, is to rethink nation-states in more culturally and linguistically plural ways while avoiding, at the same time, essentialising the language-identity link.Language and Minority Rights - a benchmark volume in the field of language rights and language policy - is an outstanding interdisciplinary analysis which draws together debates on language from widely different academic fields, including the sociology of language, ethnicity and nationalism, sociolinguistics, social and political theory, education, history and law, illustrating these debates via a wealth of different national contexts and examples. It is essential reading for students, teachers and researchers in the sociology of language, sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, language policy and planning, sociology, politics, and education.
