About the Course

This course addresses the role of language in society and the world’s linguistic relationships from a sociolinguistic and intercultural perspective. You will study how history, politics, economics and migration (to name but a few factors) can affect the language use of different groups, societies and nations, as well as discussing issues related to language and power, the linguistic market, minority languages and linguistic hierarchies, amongst other concepts.
