Cavanaugh, Jillian R.:
Living Memory: The Social Aesthetics of Language in a Northern Italian Town - hardcover

ISBN: 9781405168823

[ED: Hardcover], [PU: BLACKWELL PUBL / John Wiley & Sons], Living Memory investigates the complex question of language and its place at the heart of Bergamasco culture in northern Italy. As in other multilingual nation-states in Europe and elsewhere, linguistic revival and survival represent the promise of local solidarity, but also a threat to larger social and political relationships and unification. Jillian Cavanaugh offers an in depth look at this mixed or bivalent language use in Italy today. She describes how emotional and complex debates in Bergamo highlight the meaning and use of the Italian language and of Bergamasco, the local vernacular that is valued for its links to a particular local past. Living Memory investigates the complex question of language and its place at the heart of Bergamasco culture in northern Italy. * Integrates extensive participant observation with sociolinguistic data collection * Reveals the political and social dynamics of a national language (Italian) and a local dialect (Bergamasco) struggling for survival * Introduces the original concept of the "social aesthetics of language": the interweaving of culturally-shaped and emotionally felt dimensions of language-choice * Written to be accessible to students and specialists alike Versandfertig in 2-4 Wochen, DE, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot, offene Rechnung (Vorkasse vorbehalten)

Somerset, New Jersey, U.S.A.: Blackwell Publishers, 2009. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 8vo. pp. xviii, (1), 252, Living Memory is a very solid piece of academic work on language maintenance, shift, linguistic ideologies and cultural dynamics in an Italian region and town. It makes a significant contribution to linguistic anthropology. -Lukas D Tsitsipis, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki An engaging study of the kinds of tensions and paradoxes that make so many minority language situations such nail biters: will conscious effort to revalorize a flagging vernacular strengthen it or kill it? Does highlighting the language's cultural heritage revitalize it or turn it into an attractive but irrelevant museum piece? 'Living Memory' beautifully documents the complex and delicate situation of a stubborn Italian dialect. In doing so, it helps us understand the role language plays in contemporary debates about identity, belonging, citizenship and rapid social change., Blackwell Publishers, 2009
