Abstract and Keywords

The closing chapter explores the consequences that the processes of change taking place under the conditions of late modernity may have for language policy and planning (LPP) research. In particular, it addresses seven key strands of discussion that emerge from the chapters in this Handbook, and which the editors believe will be important in the future of the field, namely (1) the continued importance of critical approaches; (2) the paradox of agency; (3) the need for ethnographic approaches to move from recognition of their value to further engagement with epistemological awareness; (4) the challenge of creating new links between LPP and alternative philosophical traditions, beyond European political theory; (5) the increasing role of media in LPP; (6) the need for expanding collaborations and revisiting long-standing assumptions about community-based research, language rights, and activism; and (7) the imperative of addressing ethical issues in contemporary LPP research through researchers’ reflexivity.

Keywords: agency, ethnography, language planning, language policy, language rights, late modernity, media, political theory, reflexivity
