Abstract

The opening chapter of The Oxford Handbook of Language Policy and Planning addresses many of the current questions that researchers face under contemporary conditions of change tied to so-called late modernity, with an ambition to better understand the current period in which the field of language policy and planning (LPP) operates. Against the background of the academic journey of the editors of the Handbook, the chapter first provides an overview of the foundations of the field of LPP. After this, it details the specific questions that have guided the organization of this volume. In the final section, the chapter maps out some of the different threads of recent LPP research evident in this Handbook, highlighting the issues that scholarly analysis seeks to understand and the approaches to research used in the investigation, and anticipating some of the generalizations that emerge.
