Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This seminar concentrates on the impact of the adoption of English as a Second Language on pre-existing sociolinguistic situations in various communities. We will read some relevant literature and develop individual projects in which the different aspects of this phenomenon will be analysed and compared. The opening sessions of the seminar will be devoted to an overview of the consequences of the adoption of ESL in terms of: language attitudes, repertoires, educational systems, language mixing, ideological and political overtones, literatures in English, and related issues.
Assessment:
Class participation; paper presentation; research paper.
