Linguistic Ethnography from an Educational Perspective

This course introduces basic theoretical points of departure in linguistic ethnography and examines the field's emergence in relation to other similar research fields.

The focus of the course is on research on multilingualism, identity, and learning in educational contexts. You are introduced to a number of core texts and key concepts are discussed. We will also discuss and problematize the application and significance of a linguistic ethnographic approach in scientific publications on multilingualism, identity, and learning in educational contexts. In addition, you will transcribe and analyze interactional data and discuss the implications of different transcription and analytical choices. Finally, you will report on and discuss ethical aspects of linguistic ethnographic research.

The course is given in collaboration with the Centre for Research on Bilingualism, Department of Swedish Language and Multilingualism, Stockholm University.
