Chapter Summary

This conclusion presenst some closing thoughts on Gramsci's writings. Gramsci's writings remain relevant to the present scholarly context, and can inspire new research on the role that language, language education, and also linguistic research play in social life and political conflicts. The chapter discusses Ronald Schmidt's insights on the links between language policy and political theory. It draws some conclusions on the role to be given to linguistic themes in a reconstruction of Gramsci's intellectual and political biography, and in explaining Gramsci's current worldwide influence. It outlines the ultimate Gramscian connections between language and politics, by bringing to the fore Gramsci's implicit awareness and understanding of these fundamental connections - that is, by making explicit something that is not immediately discernible in his writings, but would seem to lie at the heart of his reasoning.

Keywords: Gramscian connections; language; linguistic research; politics
