“Is speaking English a civic duty?” by Ingrid Piller

It’s been a while since I’ve posted to my blog, but I assure you I haven’t forgotten it!  I’m gathering material for a post about immigration in the United States and the role of English.

However, I wanted to put out a quick post with some exciting news.  I recently published an article in the Journal of Sociolinguistics titled “‘English… it’s part of our blood’: Ideologies of language and nation in United States Congressional discourse”.

Ingrid Piller (Macquarie University) an applied sociolinguist and a blogger in the Language, migration, and social justice section at Language on the Move has written about my article.  Go check out her perspective on my work here, and don’t forget to subscribe to the blog she contributes to: Language, migration, and social justice.
