The role of language in identities

 

Pomme van de Weerd(NL) (MA) was trained as a cultural anthropologist at the University of Utrecht.Her previous work focused on language, culture, and identity, mostly in Santiago, Chile. For her Ph.D. at Maastricht University, she examines the connections between language use, social dynamics, and identity among students of a VMBO school in Limburg from a linguistic, anthropological perspective. Her dissertation asks how these adolescents make use of language to identify with certain groups, how languages influences their social interactions, while relating this all to larger-scale processes such as globalization.


The role of language in identities
Language is a meaningful and rich resource. It is useful to convey information, but even more so, it says a lot about who we are and want to be. During the workshop, participants will examine how they interpret and value the ways that people talk. What does the language you use say about who you are, how you see others, and what is important to you?
