Announcement: “At the borders of languages: the role of ideologies in the integration of forced migrants in multilingual Luxembourg” by Erika Kalocsányiová

Dear LANGSCAPE members,

During the LANGSCAPE Conference 2017 in Leeuwarden/Ljouwert (NL) we had the opportunity to listen to Erika Kalocsányiová’s interesting talk about her research project. Albeit rather belatedly, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that by now her dedicated work has developed into an article titled “At the borders of languages: the role of ideologies in the integration of forced migrants in multilingual Luxembourg”.

Her paper considers the role of language ideologies in the linguistic integration of forced migrants. It discusses the findings of an ethnographic exploration that was conducted in Luxembourg with five individuals who sought refuge there. A network of teachers and institutional representatives constituted the secondary pool of research participants. Through analysis of metalinguistic discourse and narrative episodes, the paper scrutinises the instrumental and integrative dimensions of language. In particular, it draws attention to and problematises the hegemonic ideologies that inform linguistic integration. By bringing into focus multilingual realities and mobile aspirations, this research seeks to provide a new impetus to the reconceptualisation of integration.

You can read Erika Kalocsányiová’s full article by following this link.

Kind regards,

Florian Möller
