Differentiation process: language practices to their social interpretation
University of Geneva, Switzerland. | 20.01.2016 - 22.01.2016
The aim of the conference is thereby to examine the role of language use in the construction of boundaries (ethnic, geographic, etc.) in different social spheres (education, labor market, political speech, etc.). This conference will also address the challenges of the differentiation process, insofar as the very activity of creating borders – in its scope as inclusive and exclusive – involves the legitimacy of certain social affiliations.
