The discourse on identity and language of students in a Ukrainian-English bilingual program.

Published 2005 .
Written in English.

About the Book

Issues of identity and language have been and still are discussed frequently in Canada. This thesis examines the intersection between language and identity with high school students in a Ukrainian-English bilingual program in a Western Canadian public school. I have carried out a qualitative study using interviews and document analysis. I understand the concepts of identity and language to be social constructions influenced by numerous factors and not only based on a set of fixed characteristics. I argue that the lack of Ukrainian language use in the daily lives of the students is not indicative of a decline in their Ukrainian identity. The students strongly identify with their Ukrainian heritage and recognize the importance of language. It is also interesting that the student discourse mirrors the national and provincial discourse on language and multiculturalism. For these students, there is no conflict in being both Ukrainian and Canadian.
