Linguistic Identities in Post-Conflict Societies: Current Issues and Developments in Northern Ireland

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article assesses the identity politics of language in post-conflict
Northern Ireland, where language debates at a political level have
been encased in questions of identity. However, despite the continued
existence of ethnocentric narratives around language, opportunities
have emerged for individuals to cross linguistic barriers and challenge
the perspective that certain languages ‘belong’ to certain communities.
