The University of Bergen presents six parallel courses for PhD candidates and junior researchers. These disciplinary courses will be tied together by a series of common sessions such as keynotes and roundtables, so there will be ample opportunities to engage in critical analyses to seek creative solutions and to participate in open debates.
Language is a crucial means for communication and interaction. Language not only reflects and expresses facts and observations; it also influences attitudes and behaviour. It thus constitutes a vital component of the cultural prerequisites underlying societal development.Through different approaches (theories and methods) illustrated through a diversity of cultural and societal settings, the Language, culture and society course will focus on the role of language in relation to the following topics: politics, media, climate change, poverty, migration, business and norms.
