Summary: The study of Language Policy and Planning (LPP) began in the 1960’s and was then primarily concerned with constructing proposals for how nations might engage in language planning. Since then, the field has progressed rapidly, and numerous theories of language policy have been proposed. Yet, the field might be described as disparate – populated by scholars with different training (anthropology, linguistics, sociolinguistics, and education) who approach the study of language policy in very different ways. Referring to example language policies from around the world, this presentation examines the historical trajectory of the field and focuses on major theories, research methods, and findings. Current debates will be examined and proposals for the future of LPP research will be presented.
