Language Use and Migration - Prof. Dr. Britta Schneider

Chair of Language Use and Migration

Welcome to the team page of Language Use and Migration!

In our team, we are interested in relationships between language, society, migration, and technology. We examine how digital cultures (re)shape linguistic norms and community definitions, explore how multilingualism influences identity and social dynamics, critically analyse media representations and the role of language in social inclusion and exclusion practices. Our work is rooted in critical sociolinguistic, linguistic anthropological and discourse analytical methodologies, aiming to provide insights into the ways language intersects with social and material processes in an increasingly interconnected world.
