Course content

Multiling Summer School 2022 - Communication and environmental justice: Sociocultural Linguistic Approaches

12th to 16th September, 2022
How is sociocultural linguistics connected to environmental justice? and How is environmental justice connected to sociocultural linguistics? In asking these interwoven questions, the 2022 MultiLing Summer School focuses on how sociocultural linguistic research methods can contribute to our understanding of the intersection of environmental and social (in)justice in a time of growing ecological crisis. In this way, the course will explore not only how critical research in sociocultural linguistics can shed light on the role of language and communication in environmental (in)justice, but also how sociocultural linguists can support environmental justice struggles.
