Conference at the Max-Planck-Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity, Department of Ethics, Law and Politics • Recent years have provided us with new images of a world in which persons can interact almost seamlessly regardless of distance. Various private and public institutions draw on changing means of communication and transport that seem to transcend particular spaces and times. Concepts such as liquid democracy suggest the revolutionary potential of digital media for our thinking about politics. At the same time, we are also witnessing an unbroken and even growing focus on securing territorial borders. [mehr]

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.
