Meeting Description:

This symposium takes stock of linguistic diversity and language variation in Berlin. We are concerned with traditional and recent dialectal diversity, new and old migrant multilingualisms, as well as emerging linguistic élites in the city, in order to give insight into language in its local but transnationally conditioned socio-economic embeddedness. Our analytical focus is on language practices in Berlin that are involved in different dimensions of local diversity, communication grounded in digital technologies, the emergence of linguistic, cultural, political and spatial discourses and communities, or discursive and institutional responses to these.
