Product Description:

This volume focuses on the everyday legalities and practicalities of naturalization including governmental processes the language of citizenship tests and classes the labelling and lived experiences of immigrants/outsiders and the media's interpretation of this process. The book brings together scholars from a wide range of specialities who accentuate language and raise issues that often remain unarticulated or masked in the media. The contributors highlight how governmental policies and practices affect native-born citizens and residents differently on the basis of legal status. Furthermore the authors observe that many issues that are typically seen as affecting immigrants (such as language policies nationalist identities and feelings of belonging) also impact first-generation native-born citizens who are seen as or see themselves as outsiders.
