The value of post-colonial Spanish and the ideologies of pride and profit
In this lecture, I will define post-colonial Spanish and discuss its development between the early nineteenth century and the present. I will focus, in particular, on the metalinguistic discourses deployed by different glottopolitical actors who compete over control of the language´s value as a symbol of national or ethnic identity (what Alexandre Duchêne and Monica Heller refer to as the ideology of pride) and as an asset in global linguistic markets (what D&H refer to as the ideology of profit). I will conclude by assessing, on the basis of evidence produced by the study of post-colonial Spanish, the explanatory power of the pride and profit framework.
