This book provides a comprehensive overview of Hispanic applied linguistics, allowing students to understand the field from a variety of perspectives and offering insight into the ever-growing number of professional opportunies afforded to Spanish language program graduates. The goal of this book is to re-contextualize the notion of applied linguistics as simply the application of theoretical linguistic concepts to practical settings and to consider it as its own field that addresses language-based issues and problems in a real-world context. The book is organized into five parts: 1) perspectives on learning Spanish 2) issues and environments in Spanish teaching 3) Spanish in the professions 4) the discourses of Spanish and 5) social and political contexts for Spanish. The book's all-inclusive coverage gives students the theoretical and sociocultural context for study in Hispanic applied linguistics while offering practical information on its application in the professional sector.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Globally, this volume is an extremely valuable contribution that fills a gap that had only been fragmentally filled in the field, and that to the best of our knowledge is not matched by other current studies in extension, depth or how well they succeed to show the intricate relation between the job market, linguistics and society.' - Antonio Fabregas, Borealis, University of Tromso - The Arctic University

'The variety of perspectives and traditions represented in this handbook, besides reflecting the maturity of the field, defines its truly international and interdisciplinary character, making it an excellent resource for students, teachers, and researchers who are interested in the field of applied linguistics and its professional applications.' - Elisa Gironzetti, Texas A&M University

"...this volume has a lot to offer and would make an excellent addition to the personal or institutional library of the applied linguist interested in Spanish. Notable aspects include the balance between breadth and depth of coverage of the field, the emphasis on historical context, the clear connections between related subareas, and the recommended resources at the end of each chapter...It also has the potential to generate new ideas for one's own research through "cross-pollination," that is, being exposed to the latest theories, methods, and empirical research in related fields that a specialist in one area may not keep up with otherwise. Other benefits of having access to this manual include the ease of locating key references and information about the various subfields of applied linguistics and the opportunity to assign one or more chapters to students in a Spanish applied linguistics course, either as core readings or as a starting point for a research project." - Rachel L. Shively, Illinois State University

"[This volume] would give graduate students an overview of different fields being researched currently in Spanish SLA and applied linguistics because it covers a very wide range of topics and describes current research and history of the fields. It also covers sociocultural theory, service learning, cognitive and generative perspectives, and education and teaching applications...this book is a very comprehensive survey of Hispanic applied linguistics that provides instructors, researchers, and students, with a wealth of information to use as reference." - Alonso Abad Macheno, Guilford College, Hispania Vol. 99
