Abstract

Using language portraits as an innovative, multimodal approach to investigate students’ biographies, this chapter captures cognitive migration through language and showcases multifaceted, heteroglossic linguistic repertoires. It argues that language is not only employed when migrating across physical space, but also on a cognitive or internal level within one’s body, connecting specific body parts with linguistic resources and experiences. Given the monolingual standards imposed by most education institutions, (minority language) speakers seldom have the possibility to express their multiple voices or (linguistic) identities fully and are therefore disadvantaged. Language portraits can help visualize everyone’s potential and increase understanding and appreciation of inclusive, equitable multilingual education without language hierarchies.

At a time of unprecedented human migration, education can serve as critical space for examining how our society is changing and being changed by this global phenomenon. This important and timely book focuses on methodological lenses to study how migration intersects with education.

In view of newer methodological propositions such as the reduction of participant/researcher binaries, along with newer technology allowing for mapping various forms of data, the authors in this volume question the very legitimacy of traditional methods and attempt here to expose power relations and researcher assumptions that may hinder most methodological processes. Authors raise innovative questions, blur disciplinary lines, and reinforce voice and agentry of those who may have been silenced or rendered invisible in the past.
