Course Description

This course will develop your understanding of how our use of language reflects our social identities. It investigates the concept of identity and the work it does at individual and group levels in the Gaelic speech community. It foregrounds how the construction of identity is connected to language use at different spatial scales, micro and macro-societal. The course draws on a range of literary, statistical and ethnographic sources in order to illustrate the issues under investigation and it gives you practical knowledge and experience of data synthesis and analysis through weekly workshops.
