The interdisciplinary perspective allows to question and reevaluate established concepts and research methods in original manners, herewith opening new paths that allow to combine insights from linguistic, sociolinguistic, and anthropological perspectives. Concepts central to the project are: the effects of globalization on the local, ideas on and constructions of ‘the local’, linguistic and cultural identity construction(s), “belonging”, and processes of “place-making”.

The Language-Culture project is intended as a creative, experimental space that invites researchers of the two main disciplines of the institute, linguistics and ethnology, as well as international colleagues to work in joint collaboration.
