Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The Introduction presents an overview of the volume, which consists of three sections. The first one presents the main topics in and approaches toward language politics as pursued by Central Europe’s ethnolinguistic in their character nation-states. Section two is devoted to state (national, official) languages, their history, and their political uses during the past century. In turn, the last section zooms in on the changing position, perceptions, and political uses of substate (minority, regional) languages. The chapters provide the reader with an analytical toolbox indispensable for analyzing language politics in Central Europe, alongside the case studies whose authors employ such intellectual instruments for analysis.
