This is one of six parallel PhD courses of the annual Bergen Summer Research School (BSRS). This interdisciplinary venue for exploring some of the greatest challenges of our time attract around one hundred PhD candidates, researchers and policy makers every year.
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.
The aim of this course is to discuss the role of language and language-use in a series of societal challenges and in various cultural contexts.
Through different approaches (theories and methods) illustrated through a diversity of cultural and societal settings, the course will focus on the role of language in relation to the following topics: politics, media, climate change, poverty, migration, business and norms.
