Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

English as both cause and effect of globalisation, with its spread into most domains of the public sphere and people's private lives, it bound to provoke reactions in those affected by this unprecedented phenomenon, i.e. all of us.

In this course, we will examine current debates and arguments about the historical, socio-political and linguistic developments of "World English" in an attempt to arrive at a balanced perspective on English as "the global language".

Assessment: Participants will be assessed on the basis of oral presentations, active participation in discussions in the weekly session and a short final essay.

Assessment and permitted materials

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

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. The course will be designed to focus on participants' own presentations and class discussion.

Examination topics

The focus of this course will be a critical reading of texts dealing with issues on which scholars in linguistics and related disciplines take very different positions. These issues include treatments of the following themes: standard language ideology, the ownership of English; variation across Englishes; linguistic and cultural imperialism.

Reading list

A reader will be made available to registered participants.
