Host Institution: Center for Multilingualism in Society across the Lifespan (MultiLing)
Dates: 21-Feb-2022 - 25-Feb-2022
Location: Oslo, Oslo, Norway
Focus: Research on communication in the workplace is situated at the intersection of social and linguistic concerns and can have many implications for workers’ conditions and rights, and for career development. The 2022 MultiLing Winter School focuses on the multilingual workplace as a multi-layered space where linguistic skills intersect with social, cultural and psychological factors. Our aim is to address communication in and around the multilingual workplace from various perspectives, examining communication skills and needs among both blue-collar and white-collar workers, and in both spoken and written modalities. Additionally, we will consider the multilingual workplace through multiple methodological lenses, including conversation analysis (CA), interactional sociolinguistics, and ethnographic fieldwork. In this way we aim to address a wide range of contexts and support PhD researchers with varied data, analytic methods, and interests. Participants in the course will also be invited to discuss the potential application of workplace communication research in different domains, potentially including employers, management, national policy, and workers’ unions.
Minimum Education Level: MA
