Abstract: Dieses Webinar widmet sich den vielschichtigen Zusammenhängen von Sprache und Rassismus, die bislang mit Konzepten wie Linguizismus, language racism, linguistic racism und raciolinguistic ideologies beschrieben und theoretisiert wurden. Am Beispiel zweier in Österreich angesiedelter und inzwischen abgeschlossener Forschungsprojekte werden die Vortragenden der Frage nachgehen, wie verschiedene Felder (Bildungsinstitutionen, Medien, etc.) an der (Re-)Produktion von sprachbezogenem Rassismus beteiligt sind, wie Menschen, die sprachbezogenen Rassismus erlebt haben, Sinn aus ihren Erfahrungen ziehen, in welchen Settings und unter welchen Rahmenbedingungen das Thematisieren linguizistischer Erfahrungen möglich ist und welche oppositionellen Stimmen und counter narratives sich aus dem empirischen Material rekonstruieren lassen. Aus forschungsmethodologischer Perspektive wird der Frage nach der Involviertheit der Forscher*innen ins Feld nachgegangen.

Mit Assimina Gouma (Institut für Germanistik, Universität Wien) und Nadja Thoma (Institut für Angewandte Sprachforschung, Eurac Research und Institut für Bildungswissenschaft, Universität Wien) Moderation: Marta Guarda (Institut für Angewandte Sprachforschung, Eurac Research)

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
