"The 2017 French presidential election: Results and prospects"

Workshops, conferences 2017
For the second time in the history of the French fifth Republic, the Front National is on the second turn of the presidential election. For the first time, both main parties – the Socialist Party with Benoit Hamon and the Republicans with François Fillon – have been beaten. During a long campaign full of twists and turns (both winners of the primaries were underdogs, fake job scandals, etc.), a new leftist force has emerged, embodied by Jean-Luc Mélenchon, and a centrist candidate, Emmanuel Macron, who never got elected before, won it all.

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.
