Miguel Pérez-Milans wins the BAAL Book Prize!

Congratulations to Miguel Pérez-Milans who has won the award for ‘The Oxford Handbook of Language Policy and Planning’ which he edited with Professor James Tollefson (University of Washington). The prize was announced at the British Association for Applied Linguistics (BAAL) annual conference in Manchester.

The book covers a history of language policy and planning (LPP) and explores directions for future research. It covers different LPP frameworks from historical, ethical and socio-economic angles. Split into four sections, the book covers a diverse range of topics including language tests and policy, nationalism, globalisation and social media, among others.

IOE Centre for Applied Linguistics members Dr Miguel Pérez-Milans, Dr Alfonso Del Percio and Professor Li Wei all contributed chapters to the book. Read the announcement on the IOE website here.
