Examines efforts to revitalise Māori language and selected indigenous languages through education. Includes interventions by both government and indigenous groups in policy, practices, and language rights. The approach is interdisciplinary, drawing on sociolinguistics, political theory, sociology, law and education, and international, with examples from Aotearoa, Europe, North America and the Pacific.
Are you interested in or involved in issues of Māori language revitalisation? Do you want to know about the most effective means to revitalise te reo Māori? Do you want to learn from other minority language communities worldwide in their attempts to revitalise their languages? This course will focus on these questions and examples, along with the wider issue of language rights for indigenous and other minority language speakers in the world today.
