This volume brings together scholars in sociolinguistics and the sociology of new media and mobile technologies who are working on different social and communicative aspects of the Latino diaspora. There is new interest in the ways in which migrants negotiate and renegotiate identities through their continued interactions with their own culture back home, in the host country, in similar diaspora elsewhere, and with the various "new" cultures of the receiving country. This collection focuses on two broad political and social contexts: the established Latino communities in urban settings in North America and newer Latin American communities in Europe and the Middle East. It explores the role of migration/diaspora in transforming linguistic practices, ideologies, and identities.

Rosina M'uez Reiter is Reader in the School of English and Languages at the University of Surrey, UK.Luisa Mart'Rojo is Professor of Linguistics at the Universidad Aut'noma, Spain.

Editorial Reviews

"A welcome contribution to the emerging body of work in sociolinguistics more generally and the sociolinguistics of Latino cultures more specifically." -- Bernadette O¿Rourke, Heriot-Watt University, UK "This volume is both an excellent contributor to theorizing the sociolinguistics of globalization, and also extends upon Blommaert's framework by exploring the role of new media within these interactions" -- Vineeta Chand, University of Essex, UK "As international migration becomes an increasingly prominent feature of societies the world over, it is clear that innovation in language education and related fileds will be greatly enhanced by serious attention to diaspora as a legitimate construct and space for sociolinguistic inquiry, and the studies that consitute this volume provide a thought-provoking starting point." -- Ava Becker-Zayas, University of British Columbia, Canada "The text as a whole is more than just a collection of studies on Latino diaspora across the globe. It is a reconceptualization of language in society, illuminating how ideology and identity are always embedded in language practices. The studies in this volume have far-reaching implications and are essential for both novice and experienced researchers alike." -- Journal of Linguidstic Anthropology "The collection represents an important addition to the study of Spanish in nontraditional contexts and should be in the collection of all scholars and students interested in these topics." -- Daniel J. Villa, New Mexico State University, USA
