    The 10th International Symposium on Bilingualism, held at Rutgers University, takes place May 20-24! With a theme of "Uncovering Multilinguialism," we think attendees would very much enjoy a few of our top titles that complement this theme perfectly. 

    Now available in paperback, The Routledge Handbook of Multilingualism provides a comprehensive survey of the field of multilingualism for a global readership, and an overview of the research which situates multilingualism in its social, cultural and political context. 

    In Metrolingualism, authors Alastair Pennycook and Emi Otsuji introduce the notion of ‘metrolingualism’, showing how language and the city are deeply involved in a perpetual exchange between people, history, migration, architecture, urban landscapes and linguistic resources.
