Feliciano Chimbutane
Feliciano Chimbutane writes about language and citizenship education in postcolonial Mozambique. We can see clearly in this piece that language and colonialism are inextricably entwined. Further, we can see that the connection between language and power in the form of ideologically-based constraints does not become less once a society has begun to establish a post-colonial identity. Efforts to promote linguistic – and broader cultural and political – diversity are related directly to forms of citizenship education.
