Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This proseminar focuses on linguistic landscapes in present-day urban settings. It provides insight into the linguistic landscape as a field of study, which deals with the use of different languages on public display, in particular in multilingual settings. Linguistic cityscapes will be examined from multiple perspectives – theoretical, methodological, and critical. Various approaches to the study of semiotic landscapes, i.e. multimodality, ethnography, intertextuality, contextualisation, will be explored and applied in the analysis of language use in the public domain.
