Overview

Though often treated as an objective category, heritage language learner is a social construct contested by researchers, government officials, school administrators, and students themselves. Based on ethnographic fieldwork at a Japanese language school in the US, the book examines the construction of the heritage language learner, viewing the notion as a site of negotiation regarding the legitimate knowledge of language and ways of belonging.
