Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The central topic and content of this Master Seminar is sociolinguistic fieldwork in application to language attitude research in the context of the Viennese linguistic landscape. The goal is to enable students to carry out and report a respective scientific project.
Language attitudes (social and evaluative associations of language use) are an important component in interactional meaning-making. In this seminar, we explore their impact in the context of language choice on written signage in public space.
On the foundation of an introduction to the theory and methods of sociolinguistic language attitude research, this course culminates in the design and implementation of questionnaire-based fieldwork projects carried out in work groups, under close supervision of the lecturer. These projects form the basis for the central component of grading – the seminar paper.

Assessment and permitted materials

Grading is based on the accrual of performances across several modules (using the appropriate materials), comprising the following:
- Active participation and completion of set tasks (such as readings, summary of a topical scientific article, e-learning): 10%
- Project work in groups: 30% – comprised of:
Project exposé and group presentation: 15% (group grade)
Data collection and data entry: 15% (individual grade)
- Seminar paper: 60% (ca. 25 pages of main text; individual grade). Deadline for submission: 4/30/2020.
N.B.: Each seminar paper, while based on the data collectively compiled by each group, is to be individually authored.
International students may submit their paper in English language, after prior consultation of the lecturer.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Minimum requirements:
This is a course with continuous assessment, for which attendance is mandatory (as per the decree of the Directorate of Studies: max. 3 absences).
