World Englishes on YouTube: Using and analyzing video clips as teaching samples

The video uploading platform YouTube offers an impressive range of options for using and analyzing video clips representing different World Englishes as teaching tools. In this lecture I first provide a very brief introduction to the topic of World Englishes and some facts on YouTube; then I suggest a typology of YouTube clips with respect to their representation of language varieties, including illustrative samples; and finally I employ two clips to show how relatively simple qualitative and quantitative analyses can be conducted on the basis of such material.

Alle Interessierten sind herzlich eingeladen!

Representations of Gendered Identities and Ideologies in Austrian L2 Secondary-School Textbooks

This talk reports on a project that investigates how two of the most frequently used EFL textbook series (Make Your Way and Prime Time) in Austrian upper- secondary schools represent and multimodally construct gender and sexuality, and whether or not they contribute to a gender differentiating discourse and the naturalisation of  heteronormativity.The methodological framework combines Critical Discursive  Psychology,  Multimodal  Social Semiotics,  and Queer Theory into an integrative, multi-perspectival approach. Items selected for a qualitative analysis in Atlas.ti have been chosen according to two thematic categories (“personal identification” and “relations with other people”) provided in the CEFR i.e. Threshold 1990. They include both gender emergent as well as gender critical subthemes. The analysis will be two-fold, focusing first on gender discourses, followed by ideologically informed gendered discourses. This research is particularly relevant to raise teachers’ awareness, to challenge dominant discourses and to make room for alternative identities and lifestyles in EFL classrooms and beyond.

Alle Interessierten sind herzlich eingeladen!

Commodity Politics: Contesting Responsibity in Cameron

Abstract: In his talk, Dr. Adam Sneyd will discuss initial findings from a research project that he is leading in Cameroon on the politics of palm oil, cocoa, sugar, gold and the oil pipeline. His recently completed PhD student, Dr Steffi Hamann, a Bremen graduate, conducted field research for this project. The talk focuses on the new politics associated with 'responsibility'. Stakeholders in commodity projects make increasing use of this term. In what ways, if any, is the new politics of more 'responsible' commodities changing business-as-usual in Cameroon
