This Handbook centers on language(s) in the Global South/s and the many ways in which both “language” and the “Global South” are conceptualized, theorized, practiced, and reshaped. Drawing on 31 chapters situated in diverse geographical contexts, and four additional interviews with leading scholars, this text showcases: • Issues of decolonization • Promotion of Southern epistemologies and theories of the Global South/s • A focus on social/applied linguistics • An added focus on the academy • A nuanced understanding of global language scholarship. It is written for emerging and established scholars across the globe as it positions Southern epistemologies, language scholarship, and decolonial theories into scholarship surrounding multiple themes and global perspectives.
