An NEH fellowship will allow me to complete my book project examining linguistic practices, language ideologies, and children's play and agency in Dominica, a little-studied yet complex multilingual creole society with conflicting local and national agendas concerning language use. My book bridges multiple bodies of scholarship to offer unique insights into children's lives and their roles in cultural and linguistic reproduction, innovation, and change. It illuminates the relations of language to cultural politics, post-colonial nation building, and globalization, all concerns across academic disciplines today. My analysis contributes to debates regarding language planning, language endangerment, and bilingual education in Dominica and multilingual settings generally. The book will be of interest to audiences in linguistic and cultural anthropology, sociolinguistics, creole linguistics, Caribbean studies, childhood studies, language revitalization and policy, and education.
