Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

As a consequence of the unprecedented spread of English as a world language, important questions have arisen, and have been controversially discussed, as to what "English" actually now means to different people, in different contexts. The focus of this course will be on a critical reading of articles dealing with issues concerning the role of English in today's world, on which applied linguists take very different positions. We will engage with current debates in English as a first/second/foreign language, World Englishes and English as a Lingua Franca. Themes to be investigated will include: 'English' in its historical, social and political context; the 'ownership' of English; variation across Englishes; standard language ideology; the internationalisation and indigenisation of English, linguistic imperialism, critical issues concerning the description and teaching of English.
The course will be designed to focus on participants' own presentations and class discussion, based on a critical reading of relevant texts. The objective of this course is to familiarize participants with both the relevant theoretical background underlying these issues and their implications for the description of English as well as for language policy and pedagogy. In addition to the engagement with important issues, this course should also prove helpful to participants for the development of their own skills in academic writing and arguing their case.
