Abstract

The Politics of Language and Creativity in a Globalised World, edited by David Hann and Theresa Lillis, explores the many ways in which linguistic creativity is a resource for political activity. It examines the politics surrounding the production, ownership and evaluation of different kinds of creative activity in contemporary society. The book focuses on the explosion of creative ‘production’ across texts, modes, media and technologies in contemporary society and examines how this historic shift from reception to production is raising questions about what gets valued as ‘creative’ and why.
