Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This original study focuses on how bureaucrats exert multiple forms of control over migrants, and specifically, how they restrict their access to key bureaucratic information. Drawing on a unique corpus of data gathered in a multilingual immigration office in Spain, this book will be welcomed by students and researchers in the fields of sociolinguistics, language and immigration, institutional talk, and multilingualism.

Book News Annotation:

Cod analyzes the bureaucratic process foreigners must go through to be authorized to reside legally in a new country. Using data from the city of Barcelona, Catalonia, she explores connections between macrolevel legal processes regulating access to citizenship and the situated experiences of petitioners in a bureaucratic context. In every stage of the process, she says, the choice or imposition of language both reveals and expresses the values, intentions, and relative status that are in play.
