DELC 215: Language and Identity in France, Germany and Spain

This module aims to introduce second-year students to the role that the language used by institutions plays in shaping individual perceptions of identity. The module will provide you with a basic theoretical framework that allows you to understand the relationship between language and power as reflected in current language policies at regional, national and supranational levels. We will study forms of prestige and stigma associated with varieties of the three main languages under study, raising your critical awareness of the portrayal and representation of linguistic variations in the media and in the sphere of literature.
