Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Aims:

1) gain knowledge in digital sociolinguistics and discourse analysis as it pertains to investigating narratives in English (as a lingua franca)
2) gain familiarity with and experience in applying selected CMC (Computer-Mediated-Communication) research skills
3) gain detailed linguistic narrative insights regarding a specific case of digital storytelling in E(LF)

Content & Method:

All of us use English online on a daily basis, but we do not only do so to find particular information or listen to our favourite songs. We also share and contribute to stories of various kinds when, for instance, we share recent travel experiences on Facebook, write blog entries on what (might have) happened to a language learner, or relate personal events on twitter. What’s the nature of such storytelling practices and how do they contribute to our mediated selves? What’s special about them (and what not) in relation to well established offline narratives? How can they be researched (and why should they be)?
It is questions like these that we will deal with in the seminar course, which focuses on narratives (co-)created by native and non-native speakers of English in (selected) digital media. Based on readings, discussions and exemplifications, participants will learn about relevant research areas and approaches (e.g. linguistic narrative analysis, computer-mediated communication, digital sociolinguistics). By undertaking small-scale empirical studies, they will gain informed insights into specific features and patterns of online storytelling in English (functioning as a lingua franca) and its relevance for its users and their identities.
