But if the slag-heaps and refuse dumps of industrial production have become the locus of new economic and social forms, they are often also zones of informality and exception, abandonment and precarity—from which the institutions of law and policing have been withdrawn.

InCoLaS Workshop "Language and inequality in the age of superdiversity"

Workshops, conferences 2017
- by invitation only - Official and institutional responses to linguistic diversity play a significant part in establishing (andmaintaining) close links between linguistic repertoires, social hierarchies, prestige and stigma. Whilethere is no reason to assume that the sociolinguistic landscapes of globalised societies are less unequalthan before, it is clear that we need suitable ways of seeing and conceptualizing the (perhapsincreasingly complex) relationships between social hierarchization, identification, linguistic practices andmetadiscursive regimes. This workshop will contribute to developing such conceptualizations throughan intensive discussion of existing conceptualizations of social inequalities across disciplines and theirintersection with language. The aim is to understand the intersections of social stratifica-tion and culturaland linguistic categorization in an age of (linguistic) superdiversity and to contribute to the developmentof an analytical framework for these intersections.

Workshop organized by Annelies Kusters (MPI-MMG).The aim of this symposium is to foreground contributions based on linguistic ethnographies which were undertaken in educational settings and public/private/parochial settings in which people engage in the practice of translanguaging. With translanguaging we mean the linguistic practices in which people with diverse and multilingual backgrounds engage in order to make themselves understood by others. When doing so, they do not make use of separated languages but use elements/lexicon/grammar of (what might be regarded as) two or more different languages, hence the term ‘translanguaging’. In the process of translanguaging, people typically make use of a variety of channels or modalities: they may speak, point, gesture, sign, write, in a variety of combinations – ie multimodality.

"Urban Super-diversity"

Workshops, conferences 2015
How can people live together, with ever more diverse characteristics, in the world’s rapidly expanding cities? Current global migration flows show profound diversification of migrants’ nationalities, ethnicities, languages, gender balances, age profiles, human capital and legal statuses. Across the globe, such processes have created conditions of urban ‘super-diversity’. Everywhere, recent migrants with complex ‘new diversity’ traits now dwell in cities alongside people from previous, ‘old diversity’ waves, often within long-established ethnic/racial hierarchies. What will social relations, spatial patterns, political mobilizations and structures of inequality look like in tomorrow’s ever more complex urban spaces? [more]

"Language, Religion, and the Political Accommodation of Cultural Heterogeneity"

Institute Colloquium Series "Regulations of Cultural Diversity" Spring/Summer 2012
  • Date: Jun 7, 2012
  • Time: 14:15 - 15:45
  • Speaker: Rogers Brubaker (University of California, Los Angeles)
  • Rogers Brubaker is Professor of Sociology and UCLA Foundation Chair at the University of California, Los Angeles. Brubaker has written widely on social theory, immigration, citizenship, nationalism, and ethnicity. His first book explored the idea of rationality in the work of Max Weber, while his essays on Pierre Bourdieu helped introduce Bourdieu to an English-speaking audience. His next two books analyzed European nationalism in historical and comparative perspective. Citizenship and Nationhood in France and Germany (1992) sought to explain the sharply differing ways in which citizenship has been defined vis-à-vis immigrants in France and Germany and helped establish what has since become a flourishing field of citizenship studies; Nationalism Reframed: Nationhood and the National Question in the New Europe (1996) compared contemporary East European nationalisms with those of the interwar period, both emerging after the breakup of multi­national states into would-be nation-states. Subsequently, in a series of analytical essays, many of them collected in Ethnicity without Groups (2004), Brubaker has critically engaged prevailing analytical stances in the study of ethnicity, race, and nationalism and sought to develop alternative analytical resources. These informed his collaborative book Natio­na­list Politics and Everyday Ethnicity in a Transylvanian Town (2006), which examined the everyday workings of ethnicity in a setting of highly charged ethnonational conflict.
