This volume analyses the complex relations between multilingualism
and the media: how the media manage multilingualism; how
multilingualism is presented and used as media content; and how the
media are discursive sites where debates about multilingualism and
other language-related issues unfold. It is precisely this
inter-relatedness that we want to flag up when we talk about
thematising multilingualism in the media. More specifically, the
focus of this volume is on the empirical and theoretical
opportunities and challenges posed by the thematisation of
multilingualism in the media. The volume, originally published as a
special issue of the "Journal of Language and Politics" 10:4
(2011), presents a number of case studies from a variety of
linguistic, media, political, social, and economic contexts: from
print-media debates on trilingual policies in Luxembourg to new
media discussions about the sexiness of Irish or the national value
of Welsh; from issues of linguistic authority and authenticity in
an American television programme to Wikipedias multilingual policy
