19th JYVSKYL SUMMER SCHOOL FOR APPLIED LANGUAGE STUDIES 7. - 11.6. 1999 University of Jyvskyl
LANGUAGE AND IDENTITY
What is the relationship between language and identity? How are national, cultural and ethnic identities constructed through the use of language in various contexts? How are institutional and professional identities constructed? What kind of methods can be applied to study the relationship between language and identity? How can this relationship be taken into account in teaching? These are some of the questions that will be discussed in the Summer School. The aim of the School is to bring together recen research as well as to provide insights for researchers, teachers and students alike.
The invited speakers are Claire Kramsch from California, Srikant Sarangi from Wales, Ruth Wodak from Vienna and Genevieve Zarate from Paris. Talks will also be given by Finnish experts. The programme consists of lectures and workshops. During the week the participants will have an opportunity to discuss their own research or teaching methods. A detailed programme of the Summer school will be available in April.
