10-76-6-D2b-04Key Topics in Linguistics: Introduction to Multilingualism (in English)

Seminar (Teaching)

Dates:
weekly (starts in week: 1) Tue 16:15 - 17:45 GW1 A0010

Multilingualism is a normal condition for most of the people in this world. Monolingual people, in turn, are the minority. This seminar will examine different aspects of multilingualism. We will look at individual multilingualism such as bilingual language acquisition, language learning, and different forms of multilingual speech (code-switching, translanguaging, …). Moreover, we will cover aspects of multilingualism in education as well as in the society.
The class work will consist of input, discussions, and group work. The aim of the seminar is to develop and conduct your own research project in the area of multilingualism.

For the ungraded “Seminarleistung” (SL = 3 CP) you will be required to
(1) write an abstract of your research project, and
(2) present your findings at the 3rd Bremen Student Conference in English Linguistics (Monday, 25.07.2022).
For the graded “Prüfungsleistung” (PL = 6 CP) you will—additionally to the abstract and presentation—write a short term paper of your research project.

10-76-6-WD2-04Key Topics in Linguistics: Linguistic Landscapes (in English)

Seminar (Teaching)
ECTS: 3/6

Dates:
weekly (starts in week: 1) Thu 08:15 - 09:45 MZH 1460

The ensemble of linguistic and semiotic traces in public space forms a caleidoskop of cultural and social diversity in a given territory, as well as it shows a representation of social dynamics with regard to linguistic developments and repertoires, negotiations of social identity, and other subjects of social change in multilingual contexts. The investigation of languages in public space is the objective of the emerging research field of linguistic landscapes. In line with 'expanding the linguistic landscape', the course aims to explore 'linguistic diversity, multimodality and the use of space as a semiotic resource' (Pütz & Mundt, 2018).

In light of the interdisciplinary character of the field, we will work together on groundbreaking studies as well as innovative approaches in order to become acquainted with specific methods of data collection and analysis, their benefits and their limitations, respectively. In addition to discussing origins of the field, methodologies and their underlying research paradigms, students will gain practical experience in empirical research by discovering and analyzing linguistic landscapes in their own environments.

In order to fullfil the requirements for the course, a participation at this year's Bremen Student Conference in English Linguistics (July 2022) is obligatory (further information see tab "performance record")

Take a look at the following resources in order to get a first idea of LL study:

a) Linguistic Landscape: https://benjamins.com/catalog/ll (a peer-reviewed international journal, various articles are publicly available);

b) Elena Shohamy's introductory chapter in Pütz & Mundt (2018):
Shohamy, Elana. "1. Linguistic Landscape after a Decade: An Overview of Themes, Debates and Future Directions" (https://doi.org/10.21832/9781788922166-004) (cf. title, available via library)

No need to bring any prior experience, nor equipment - we’ve got you covered! And if you’re already a pro, all the better.

Von Minnesang bis hin zu Heldenepik. Vom klassischen Liebesroman bis hin zum Dark Romance Fantasy Roman. Hier wollen wir die Genres einmal genauer angucken und herausarbeiten, welche wichtigen Standpunkte und Charakterzüge die Figuren haben müssen. Die Leitfragen werden sein: Was macht ein Roman aus diesem Genre aus und woran erkennt man diesen? Wir werden dieses anhand von einigen Auszügen aus Büchern machen. Vielleicht habt Ihr auch eigene Vorstellungen zu den Genres. Wir sind immer für Anregungen offen.
Hier eine kleine Liste der Genres, wie wir bearbeiten werden:
Im Romance Bereich: der klassische Liebesroman, Dark Romance (Erotische Romane), Bad Hero Romance, Chick Lit, Nackenbeißer, LGBTQ Romance, Love and Landscape, Inspirational Romances, Romanthriller und Romantic Suspense
Fantasy und Science-Fiction (nicht das Gleiche, aber man kann es gut zusammenpacken): High, Low, Urban, Animal und Dark Fantasy Utopien, Dystopien, KI, Zeitreisen.
