Having recently completed an edited volume on researching urban multilingualism (2020), I am now working on organising a workshop on Mexican language policy from which I intend to produce an edited volume. The papers in this workshop and volume will cover a wide area of contemporary language policy contexts in Mexico, from the ever-pervading influence of global English (specifically exploring language issues amongst Mexican returnee migrants), to the situation of Mexico’s many indigenous languages, as well as the status of Mexican sign language. I am seeking to include many different methodological approaches to the study of language policy in Mexico, including linguistic and semiotic landscapes, and language biographies of a wide range of participants. The work will be framed by a discussion of language ideology debates set in a decolonising global North-South context, examining diverse data from official documents through to everyday oral practices.
