Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The Chinese diaspora in Africa has been studied from different perspectives, including the sociopolitical, the socioeconomic, and the sociocultural. This course begins with background analysis of the Chinese presence in Africa, and then focuses on sociocultural linguistics, giving course participants the opportunity to explore, in a different geographical setting, key areas in linguistics, such as contact linguistics/contact grammars, linguistic communities, language and identity, language and communication, and the recent idea of ‘diaspora linguistics’ within which concepts like linguistic repertoires and heritage grammars are salient. The course goes beyond these sociocultural linguistic concepts to explore wider issues about Chinese links to other parts of the world through the formation of diaspora communities (such as Chinese in Vienna) and what implications this has for conceptualizing Africa-China studies as area studies within a global context

Methods: Class interaction will be in the form of lectures, student presentations, group projects/discussions, visits to Chinese diaspora community settings
