Language and social inequalities, political economy and sociology of language

Led by Prof. Alexandre Duchêne, the research group conducts research in the following areas:

  • Role of language in the production of differences and social inequalities
  • Social change and language change
  • Political economy and linguistic diversity
  • Multilingualism and Migration
  • Language and power relations

The research projects are anchored in critical sociolinguistics, with an emphasis on ethnographic fieldwork and interactional and discursive data.
