Schooling vs. education: the making of a revolutionary subjectivity in postwar Ethiopia

Semeneh Ayalew Asfaw is a cultural and political historian and a postdoc who is affiliated with the Institute of Ethiopian Studies, Addis Ababa University.

His talk will focus on how university students in Addis Ababa, and Addis Ababans generally, in the postwar period reshaped the "hegemonic" discourses they received from state-affiliated institutions (the university, the theater and the like) to form a rebellious cultural and political subjectivity that paved the way for the Ethiopian Revolution of 1974. This historical understanding of the Ethiopian Revolution encourages us to view education, self making, and cultural formation as processes involving a complex interplay between subject formation from above (for example, the imperial state and its institutions) and from below (students, urban dwellers and the general citizenry). It also encourages us to view discourses and practices associated with modernity as being contested and as being informed not just by the ideas and interests of a ruling clique but also by the ideas and interests of the ruled, often with transformative and unexpected consequences.

The Colour of Equality: Race and Common Humanity in Enlightenment Thought

Devin J. Vartija is assistant professor of history at Utrecht University and a former post-doctoral fellow at the École des hautes études en sciences sociales. In his talk he will present his lates book on the concept of race in enlightenment thought (https://www.pennpress.org/9780812253191/the-color-of-equality/). Enlightenment thinkers used physical features to categorize humanity into novel "racial" groups in a discourse that was imbued with Eurocentric aesthetic and moral judgments. Simultaneously, however, these very same thinkers politicized equality by putting it to new uses, such as a vitriolic denunciation of slavery and inhumane treatment that was grounded in the nascent philosophy of human rights. Vartija contends that the tension between Enlightenment ideas of race and equality can best be explained by these thinkers' attempt to provide a naturalistic account of humanity, including both our physical and moral attributes. Enlightenment racial classification fits into the novel inclusion of humanity in histories of nature, while the search for the origins of morality in social experience alone lent equality a normative authority it had not previously possessed.

Investigating disabilities in past, present and future societies

Lotta Vikström is Professor of History at Umeå University. She often makes use of demographic data and methods to examine disabled people in history, and has published her results in scholarly journals within the humanities, social sciences and health studies. Josefine Wälivaara (PhD in drama-theatre-film) is a Researcher at Umeå University. Her research in critical disability studies deals primarily with normative notions of (dis)ability, sexuality, gender, and temporality in popular culture and fiction. In their presentation, they will showcase their research project, DISTIME, highlighting its key aspects and findings. Focusing on Swedish society the project contributes knowledge on on what the future will bring regarding how disabilities are both lived and perceived. The project brings together a cross-diciplinary team researching disability across time using a diverse set of sources and methods. Some key results are highlighted at the seminar. First, Josefine Wälivaara presents her research on normativity, disability, and ability in fiction narratives about the future (e.g. in film, television and literature). While contemporary norms concerning disability often become perpetuated in speculative imaginings of the future, they can also challenge normative understanding of disability and ablebodiedness/ ablemindedness. Second, Lotta Vikström presents long-term results on how disabilities have affected the life courses of people with disabilities in the 1800s and 1900s. Their job and partnership chances and their risks for confinement and premature mortality suggest that disability brought disadvantages which persisted over time and concerned both health and social outcomes.

CCD Working Papers/Internal seminar series

Maria Rossall, School of Education and Communication, Jönköping University, Sweden

Welcome to Maria Rossalls planning seminar in education (in Swedish) with the title "I skuggan av det kompetenta barnet".

Abstract: Det kompetenta barnet har varit en framträdande tankefigur i svensk förskola sedan 1980-90 talen, med barndomssociologins framväxt och inflytande från Reggio Emilia filosofin. Det är en tankefigur om barnet som blev viktig i samband med en förskjutning från ett perspektiv av barnet som naturvarelse till kulturvarelse, där barns biologiska egenskaper ’bakgrundas’ för att istället ’förgrunda’ idén att barnets tillblivelse är något som sker inom en social kontext. I stället för att se barn som tomma kärl som ska fyllas av vuxnas kunskap, har barns kunskaper och kompetenser blivit mer framträdande. Det har resulterat i olika synsätt på barn, å ena sidan barn med bristande kunskaper som ofta kopplas till ett utvecklingspsykologiskt perspektiv, å andra sidan att barn redan har färdiga kompetenser som ofta kopplas till ett socialkonstruktivistiskt perspektiv. Jag har själv funderat på vad denna barnsyn innebär i mötet med barn. I min yrkesroll som förskollärare upplever jag att kollegor möter barn antingen ifrån ett kompetensperspektiv eller ett bristperspektiv.

Syftet med denna avhandling är att utforska och problematisera hur barns kompetens positioneras och manifesteras inom förskolans styrning och utbildning, med fokus på förskolans förutsättningar och lärarnas undervisningspraktiker.

Min övergripande forskningsfråga är: Hur manifesteras kompetens i förskolan? Avhandlingen kommer att innehålla fyra olika studier som undersöker kompetens utifrån olika metoder och nivåer. Delstudie 1 och 2 kommer att fokusera på litteraturanalyser, den första baserat på förskolans styr- och policydokument – den gråa litteraturen med fokus på barns kompetens. Delstudie 2 är en systematisk litteraturanalys på den forskning som finns om kompetens i förskolan och var forskningen koncentreras: barnen, vuxna eller andra områden såsom exempelvis läroplanen för förskolan. Delstudie 3 kommer att vara en praktiknära observationsstudie och fokussamtal kring förskollärarnas praktiker med avstamp i teorier kring sociala praktiker. Delstudie 4 är fortfarande under utveckling.

Accessibility in qualitative research - Perspectives research with people with so-called intellectual disabilities

This lecture focuses on the question of how qualitative interview situations can be designed in such a way that it also offers people with low linguistic competence in the researching language (e.g. due to a so-called intellectual disability or other language barriers) the opportunity to open up insights into their lifeworld.

The author, Imke Niediek, University of Hannover, advocates offering a variety of methods and materials and, in the sense of qualitative methodology, engaging with the focal points of the interview partners instead of giving too much space to the interview guideline. Finally, participants will discuss the significance of the dominance of a verbally organised social world ("verbal culture") for research and for the participation or exclusion in research.

Investigating deaf cultural heritage. Discussing methodology for the Deaf Cinema project

Magdalena Zdrodowska, Institute of Audiovisual Arts, Jagiellonian University, Kraków, Poland

Since the beginning of the film, deaf filmmakers have been documenting their communities’ activities, trying to shape the image of the deaf condition (often in opposition to disability), and express their own artistic visions. Due to the social, cultural, and political status of the deaf communities, deaf films were mostly produced, distributed, and watched in closed circuits of deaf networks. Today, it makes the research of the history and contemporaneity of deaf filmmaking difficult and inaccessible within a single methodological paradigm. During the seminar, we will discuss both methodological and technological tools that can be used when deaf studies, disability studies, film studies, and film history intersect. We will also consider the researcher-as-an-ally model present in disability studies, and how to balance the profit of the researcher and of the community when investigating outside the English-speaking domain.

Teologi för en postkristen tid

Vilken roll har teologin, läran eller talet om det gudomliga, i ett samhälle där allt färre bekänner sig till en tro och sekulariseringen slagit över i ett postkristet tillstånd? Vilka möjligheter för teologiskt tänkande genereras i en sådan situation och på vilket sätt kan teologin bidra med ”sitt perspektiv genom att delta i en bredare och gemensam tydning av samtiden”? Seminariet utgår från antologin Teologi för en postkristen tid som kom tidigare i år och gästas av redaktörer och bidragsförfattare till antologin.

Foundations of Nexus Analysis: An Integrated Framework for Ethnographic Discourse Analysis of Complex Social Phenomena across Disciplines

Malmö University | Orkanen | Room B338

Francis M. Hult works at the crossroads of discourse studies, sociolinguistics, and education. He is known for his socially situated research on policy using nexus analysis. Professor Hult has written extensively on theoretical and methodological principles of nexus analysis and their application to investigating relationships between policy and practice. His books include Research Methods in Language Policy and Planning (with Johnson) and Language Policy and Language Acquisition Planning (with Siiner and Kupisch). He is Professor of Education and by courtesy of Language, Literature, and Culture and of Public Policy at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).

Developed by Scollon and Scollon (2004), nexus analysis is a conceptual and methodological framework that systematically integrates interactional sociolinguistics, ethnography of communication, and critical discourse analysis as a way to investigate phenomena as social systems, including relationships between individuals and those systems. It has proven ideally suited for gathering and analyzing data that are multilingual, multitemporal, and multimodal (e.g., Al Zidjaly, 2006; Pietikäinen, 2010) yet it is only beginning to gain broader application.

This talk presents nexus analysis as a meta-methodology for addressing contemporary research topics. Drawing upon his own work (e.g., Hult, 2015, 2017, 2019) as well as the work of others who have employed this approach (e.g., Compton, 2013; Lane, 2010, Pietikäinen, 2010), Professor Francis M. Hult provides an introduction to the principles of nexus analysis and demonstrate how they serve to highlight relevant factors that mediate social practices and, in turn, aid in tracing how those factors are influenced by discursive processes on multiple scales of society. In particular, he focuses on (a) key concepts of nexus analysis, (b) ways in which nexus analysis can guide critical thinking about data collection and analysis, and (c) practical benefits and challenges of applying nexus analysis.

While nexus analysis combines elements of critical discourse analysis, ethnography of communication, and interactional sociolinguistics, it is more than the sum of these parts, offering a novel and holistic empirical perspective for addressing multidimensional research questions in a range of fields and disciplines. This session will be of interest to anyone whose research seeks to understand relationships between individuals and the bigger picture of a socially situated phenomenon.

Expanding the Kodak Zone: Vernacular Photography and Imperial Encounter in the Philippine-American War

Silvan Neidermeier is senior lecturer at the University of Erfurt (Germany). In his talk he discusses the multifold uses of vernacular photography in the Philippine-American War (1899-1902). Based on private photographs created by white and Black U.S. soldiers as well as Philippine revolutionaries, it will show that vernacular photography provided a means for both reifying white imperial subject position and substantiating non-white and anti-imperial subject positions. Rather than acting as a unilateral “tool of empire” (Paul S. Landau), vernacular photography enabled historical actors to place themselves in and support narratives of white imperial conquest, Black military self-affirmation and Philippine anti-colonial nation building. A close reading of vernacular photographs of the Philippine-American War thus allows reconstructing both the hegemonic and counter-hegemonic function of photography in the age of imperialism.

‘Part of Prophecy’: Christian Zionism, Dispensationalism, Time

Aron Engberg is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at the School of Education and Communication: He holds a PhD in Global Christianity and Interreligious Relations. In his talk, he will discuss the affinity of pro-Zionist evangelical Christianity for the land and state of Israel, considering Protestant Christianity's historical ambivalence towards materiality and sacred locality. To these evangelical Christians, Israel is both a place of biblically inflected memory—the “land of the Bible” where Jesus historically walked—and the prime locus of a premillennial eschatological imaginary, the place Jesus will return to in the (near) future. This chapter draws on ethnographic research among Evangelical Christians in Jerusalem to explore how Christian Zionism structures Evangelical temporality. I argue first that the Evangelical “cosmology of land” significantly shapes their phenomenological experience of time and place in Israel, and secondly, that Evangelical Zionist temporality is more elastic and flexible than previously recognized, despites its premillennial leanings. This suggests that the scholarly focus on a “punctuated” dispensationalist time and a simple ‘prophecy-as-prediction’ formula needs to give way to a broader exploration of the Christian Zionist time-scape, and the ways in which it interacts with place and divine presence.

All seminar participants are required to read the paper in advance of the event. Please reach out to Aron Engberg at aron.engberg@ju.se for a copy of the paper.

Transformativt lärande och kulturellt möjliggörande litteraturundervisning på gymnasiet

Björn Bradling, doktorand i pedagogik, presenterar sin avhandling som fokuserar möjliga vägar att i undervisning konkretisera gymnasieskolans styrdokuments utpekande av skönlitteratur som bärare av möjligheter till lärande som fokuserar personlig utveckling och omvärldskunskap. Med teoretiskt stöd i den pedagogiska idéen om transformativt lärande, vilken fokuserar synliggörande och eventuell omformning av (o)uttalade föreställningar, bygger projektet på studier om skönlitterär läsning och lärande genomförda med lärare, bibliotekarier och elever i gymnasieskolan. Resultatmässiga mönster i vardande pekar i riktning mot att den valda texten sätter yttre ramar för vad som är möjligt i undervisningssituationen, men att kontextualisering och begreppsanvändning är av central betydelse för att lärandet ska kunna bli transformativt och kulturellt möjliggörande.

Neurodiversity in the Classroom: Universal Design for Learning

Summary
This talk will look at one type of diversity that can be found in every classroom: Neurodiversity, i.e. the diversity in cognitive processing.
Using the neurodiversity paradigm, we start from a perspective that values this diversity, and that acknowledges the challenges that arise when people of a minority neurotype have to deal with environments and activities that were tailored to the needs of neurotypical people.

I will discuss how Universal Design for Learning (UDL) can help make classrooms and classroom tasks more accessible for learners of different neurotypes, focusing especially on providing options for sustaining effort and persistence, for self-regulation and for executive function.

Throughout, I will draw on the voices of neurodivergent learners, former learners, and educational experts, including interviews from the ELLeN project, to illustrate the points made and also to show the breadth of experiences and opinions within the neurodiversity community.

Dr. Jules Buedgens-Kosten is a teacher educator and researcher at Goethe University Frankfurt (Germany) and a Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence at UMBC. Their primary research focuses on inclusive education in the EFL context, including with a focus on technology, and on computer-assisted language learning, especially from a multilingual lens. They are part of the ELLeN project, which uses inquiry-based learning in teacher education focusing on neurodiversity. and language learning.

The French Revolution and religious change through the lens of social emergence theory

Manuel Stadler is a PhD candidate at the Institute of Religious Studies, Leipzig University (Germany). During his presentation, he will delve into the French Revolution through the lens of social emergence theory. The French Revolution is often interpreted as the founding event of the modern secular nation-state, built up upon the guiding principle of laïcité, a strict form of separation between the church and the state, which is generally misunderstood as a categoric split between religion and politics. The religious politics during the French Revolution had a significant impact on the perception of history as the unfolding of reason and rationality, leading to the construction of a perfect society based on natural laws. In this talk Stadler wants to challenge the classical narrative of the French Revolution as a process of secularization and instead use a Durkheimian emergence theory approach to interpret the empirical sources. Emergence theory presupposes that society is more than the sum of rational acting individuals but can be described through concepts of collective psychology. To operationalize emergence theory, he will focus on empirical sources stemming from the period of the French Revolution, uncovering changes in power relations and social structures. The aim of his presentation is to use religion as a heuristic concept to explain how the change of power relations is connected to the emergence of new forms of collective memory.

Högstadielevers upplevelser av att öva muntlig språkfärdighet på målspråket med konversationsagenter

Elin Ericsson, fil. doktor i tillämpad informationsteknologi med inriktning mot utbildningsvetenskap, presenterar sin nyligen försvarade avhandling. Den handlar om AI-baserade dialogsystem som möjliggör muntliga konversationsövningar i verklighetsnära situationer för elever att öva på det språk de studerar. De genomförda praktiknära studierna har en utgångspunkt i etablerade andraspråkinlärningsprinciper såsom att lärande sker i social interaktion med möjlighet till att använda språket i en trygg miljö och att få feedback. Resultaten visar att elevernas självrapporterade upplevelser varierade mycket kring hur de socialt relaterade till konversationsagenterna, med allt från ingen relation alls till att uppleva dem som mänskliga och aktivt deltagande i social interaktion. Denna sociala dimensionen visade sig vara viktig för den sammanlagda utbildningsupplevelsen. Lärare behöver därför ha kännedom om de olika faktorerna bakom de stora individuella skillnaderna i elevernas upplevelser som påverkar den sammanlagda utbildningsupplevelsen i dialogsystemet med konversationsagenterna. Överlag upplevdes lärandeaktiviteten som lätt, rolig och trygg för att på ett meningsfullt sätt öva på att hålla igång en dialog och öva uttal på målspråket, som komplement till andra metoder.

Title: Capitalising on Lessons Learnt from the COVID-19 Crisis: Increasing Access to Education to Learners with Disabilities in Africa

COVID-19 has disrupted education systems on a global scale, creating unexpected challenges. Approximately 1.6 billion children around the world have been unable to attend school due to COVID-19 lockdowns, with schools required to make rapid adjustments in the move to online teaching and learning. As African countries worked toward managing learning continuity, learners with disabilities seemed to have been further marginalised. However, the COVID-19 pandemic seems to have presented a unique opportunity to re-think emergency planning for accessible and inclusive education. This presentation examines the challenges faced by learners with disabilities in accessing education during COVID-19 induced lockdown in Africa. It also proffers strategies that can be adopted to make education more disability inclusive.

Title: The Trajectories of a Life

This presentation combines a phenomenological account of life trajectories with a practice theory approach to the social contexts in which life trajectories occur to illuminate key features of the phenomena studied by life course research. The discussion construes life trajectories, not as the events and transitions that make up the progress of life in specific life domains, but as central dimensions of a life qua continually unfolding entity. It subjects three types of trajectories so construed to analysis: space-time paths, successions of actions, and past-future arcs. It then explores the contextualization of such trajectories in constellations of social practices. The presentation concludes by situating life and its trajectories in the causal order of society and reflecting on the advantages of using theories of practices in this context.

Title: Rethinking ‘Diversity’ in the cultural industries
While the ‘diversity’ paradigm is shaping policy across public and public sectors in Western contexts, it is particularly pronounced in the creative and cultural industries. In the UK, such industries have long been aware of, to paraphrase former BBC Director General Greg Dyke, their hideous whiteness. As a consequence, a plethora of initiatives have been launched to improve the racial and ethnic composition of the cultural workforce. Yet such initiatives are having little impact on the representation of racially minoritised groups, whether on- or off-screen. In this paper, drawing from my research into the experiences of Black, Asian and racialised people who work in British cultural industries, I highlight the limitations of diversity policies. But rather than a case of such policies/initiatives not working, I argue that diversity as a discourse - that is, a form of power/knowledge - is the means through which existing social hierarchies (and racial inequalities) remain intact.

CCD international seminar series

Lynn Mario T. Menezes de Souza, Professor of Language Education at the University of São Paulo, Brazil

Title: Navigating difference in language, literature and literacy

This seminar will focus on difference as a construct of self and how a non-understanding of this can lead to a perception of difference as an external characteristic only of others. The seminar will focus on how ‘difference’ in dealing with others can be better understood as 'gaps' in one’s knowledge which need to be navigated. Examples from language, literature and literacy will be discussed.

Besides Language Education Professor Lynn Mario T. Menezes de Souza's research interests lie in language and educational policy and politics, literacy, literary theory and interculturality. His recent publications include ‘De-universalizing the Decolonial’ (in Gragoatá 2021) and 'Glocal Languages and Critical Intercultural Awareness: The South Answers Back' (Routledge 2019). He currently co-coordinates the bi-national (Brazil-South África) research group Rethinking Multilingualism and Being Human.

Workshop

1st Exploratory Workshop on Ethics and Values in Educational Data-Driven Practices

Venue: VIA University College, Århus, Denmark

The project “Ethics and Values in educational data-driven practices: Conceptual, Methodological and Pragmatic Explorations” funded by the Swedish Vetenskapsrådet aims to explore useful concepts, methods, and interventions for researching ethics and values in data-driven education. It will consist of a blend of keynote presentations, paper presentations, and discussions among participants.

We have singled out a range of concepts that will be central for exploring ethics and values in educational data-driven practices. These are – but are not limited to: practices, care, imaginaries/imagination, aesthetics, and Bildung. The overall research question guiding the workshop is: Which concepts and notions support nuanced discussions about values reflected in emerging educational sociotechnical imaginaries?

CCD international Seminar series

Peter De Costa, Department of Linguistics, Germanic, Slavic, Asian and African Languages, Michigan State University (MSU)

Title: Unpacking Profit and Pride in EMI Higher Education: How Universities Manage this Precarious Balancing Act

In a neoliberal era marked by a global expansion of higher education, many Western based universities aggressively opened EMI satellite campuses in Asia and the Middle East. Inspired by profit and the need to chase the foreign tuition dollar, such expansionary efforts have met with different degrees of success. However, as world economic growth starts to recede and nationalist sentiments rise, we have witnessed a curtailing, and in some cases withdrawal, of these transnational endeavours. Adopting an ecological approach (Han, De Costa & Cui, 2019) to better understand this educational phenomenon, I investigate how English monolingual biases and an emergent interest and pride in local languages within several countries that have hosted joint venture foreign campuses have been negotiated. Specifically, I explore the ways in which different social actors – students, faculty and administrators – engage in complex identity work that often results in individuals being sorted and sieved according to the various levels of capital that they possess. These actors’ strategic policy and pedagogical decisions will also be unpacked against mounting internal pressures by governments to raise the standards of local universities in the face of stiff global university ranking competition.

 

Biography: Peter I. De Costa is an Associate Professor in the Department of Linguistics, Languages & Cultures and the Department of Teacher Education at Michigan State University. His research areas include emotions, identity, ideology and ethics in educational linguistics. He also studies social (in)justice issues. He is the co-editor of TESOL Quarterly and the First Vice-President of the American Association for Applied Linguistics (AAAL).

CCD international seminar series

Sep 26, 9.05-10.35 a.m.: Lourdes Ortega, Faculty Director of GU’s Initiative for Multilingual Studies, Georgetown University, U.S.

Title: Southern and Decolonial Turns in Applied Linguistics

(Lecture 9.05-10.05 a.m. + discussion 10.05-10.35 a.m.)

Abstract: Southern and Decolonial Turns in Applied Linguistics
Applied linguists have engaged in revisionist and critical work (e.g., the social and the
multilingual “turns”) for three decades. Most critiques, however, continue to be rooted and oriented towards Eurocentric ideas, and many still remain bound to modernist and
postpositivist intellectual traditions. As of recently, we have seen a steady increase in
explorations of alternative ontologies and voices/identities, in what could be viewed as
aspirational new "turns" guided by the two central notions of Southern epistemologies and decolonial theories. Why do we need any Southern/decolonial turns in the field? Here one can think of ontological erasures and epistemic injustices that need to be disrupted. For example, in my field of second language acquisition (SLA), we researchers have become virtuosi of research methods and open science values, which on the other hand has only made us become even more proficient in methodologies devoid of any interrogation of race/racism. What strategies might we devise to de-link ourselves from Western Modernity, if that is even possible, and what strategies can make decolonizing efforts have a lasting impact? Here it is important (a) to educate oneself in the different genealogies and distinct commitments of circulating concepts (e.g., intersectionality versus assemblages; endangered languages vs. sleeping languages; etc); (b) to learn to cultivate epistemic disobedience (Mignolo), refuse abyssal thinking (de Sousa Santos), and engage in world-traveling (Lugones) and in-betweenness (Bhabha); and (c) to force ourselves to unpack the whiteness embodied in our research habitus and the coloniality wedded in our disciplinary commitments and our conceptualizations of Self, Other, authority, and truth.
I discuss dilemmas surrounding these questions, with most of my examples drawn from the field I know best, SLA. I conclude by reflecting on the rewards and challenges that await us, if we are finally willing to unlearn our settler colonial ways of relating and
understanding, and we attend to how to integrate meaningful subjectivities of difference into explanations of language learning, social practices, and systems of oppression.


Sep 26, 1-3 p.m.: Stefan Helgesson, Department of English, Stockholm University, Sweden

Title: North-South and South-South Intellectual Legacies

(Lecture 1-2 p.m. + discussion 2.30-3 p.m.)

Abstract: North-South and South-South Intellectual Legacies
If, as Robert Young has argued, the global intellectual history of decolonisation should
be considered a “tricontinental” phenomenon, what does this history look like from
different localised perspectives? In response to that question, my talk will have two main points of anchorage. The first is the anticolonial discourse in Sweden that emerged in the late 1950s and 1960s, the second is the African (mainly southern African) participation in the tricontinental intellectual commons – also in the post-1945 era. These histories will then lead to a reflection on where we might locate transcontinental dialogues today, in our moment of post-globalisation.


Sep 27, 9-10.30 a.m.: Tommaso Milani, Department of Swedish, multilingualism, language technology, University of Gothenburg, Sweden

Title: On Angry Alliances

(Lecture 9-10 a.m. + discussion 10-10.30 a.m.)

Abstract: On Angry Alliances
While anger is often treated as a ‘dirty’ feeling or a pathology, queer anger holds the
potential for a renewed politics of (self-)discomfort. I draw upon queer theory in order to strategically highlight that anger is what constitutes queer both as a homophobic slur and as a reclaimed label of self-identification. Put differently, it is impossible to understand how ‘queer’ works pragmatically without its affective loading. Moreover, inspired by the Black feminist tradition, I argue that it is imperative to forge angry coalitions with other activist and academic projects against discrimination. Current research in Sweden and elsewhere needs to build a broader defying alliance that not only marshals together various streams of anger directed at different sides of the same Leviathan, hegemony, but also does not shy away from internal annoyances and is not afraid of constantly discomforting itself.

12.30 Introduktion till DoIT och dagens tema av Sangeeta Bagga Gupta, Jönköping University och Petra Weckström, Riksteatern.

12.45 Kulturell hållbarhet är ett begrepp som funnits med i hållbarhetsdiskursen, i alla fall sedan Brundtlandrapporten 1987. Men utan att få fäste. Nu är läget akut, ända tvekar mänskligheten. Lösningarna är tekniska och naturvetenskapliga. Kultur i allmänhet, och humanistisk men även sociologisk forskning, ses inte som del av klimat- och miljöarbetet. Trots att den moderna människan orsakat problemen är hon inte en del av lösningen. Vad ett gott liv är och nödvändigheten av gränser för våra begär diskuteras knappt. Vi ska fortsätta som tidigare, utvecklings- och tillväxtparadigmen gäller. Inte ens kulturinstitutionerna själva ser vilka deras unika bidrag skulle kunna vara. De fokuserar på saker som miljöledning (i sig bra) och på att berätta om det som håller på att hända, och vad som kan görs åt det men inom andra områden än kultur. Är det inte dags att kasta ljus över denna blinda fläck?

Hur kan kulturen bidra? Örebro läns museum ger exempel på hur vi arbetar i teori och praktik.

13.45 Paus med fika för dem som är på plats

14.00 Samtal i grupper på plats och digitalt – vad kan kulturinstitutioner – och verksamheter göra för den kulturella hållbarheten, om den är viktig?

14.45 Samtal i nya grupper – vilka är dina drivkrafter till personlig förändring? Det första steget mot kulturell hållbarhet?

15.45 Avslutning och blick mot nästa möte

Family multilingualism through a ‘translingual lens’: Current theoretical orientations and challenges

In the past five years or so, sociolinguistic approaches to family multilingualism have been marked by an ever-increasing diversity of theoretical orientations (Curdt-Christiansen 2018, Lanza and Lomeu Gomes 2020). Among these orientations, one that has received particular attention takes a practice-based perspective and draws on understandings of languages as fluid, dynamic, and localised (as opposed to abstract entities that can be neatly separated, counted, and labelled). Building on this discussion, in the first part of this seminar, I point to the ways in which the employment of a ‘translingual lens’ can be useful in making sense of the connections between language practices and ideologies of family members in multilingual houses. In particular, I present part of a three-year ethnographically oriented study undertaken in Oslo, Norway to discuss how monoglossic language ideologies may influence parent-child interactions in the home (Lomeu Gomes 2020). This analytical move may illuminate certain questions overlooked by current literature on child bilingualism. Yet, its employment risks reifying taken-for-granted understandings of language and losing its innovative explanatory potential (Bagga-Gupta and Messina Dahlberg 2018, Pennycook 2016). In the second, and final, part of the seminar, the following question is posed: to what extent can the employment of a ‘translingual lens’ be reconciled with the efforts of parents who aim at fostering practices that may lead to the maintenance of the so-called home language(s)? Rather than reaching definite answers, it is expected that the discussion in this seminar triggers reflections concerning the challenging task of doing socially relevant research that may inform practices in the home and in society at large.

Analysing communicative repertoires and social change. The dynamics of language regimes in Timor-Leste

Timor-Leste is a small Southeast Asian country, which became independent in 2002, its Constitution recognizes two languages as official, Portuguese, which was chosen because of its history in the territory and Tetun, a standardized version of a local language variety. Beyond the official languages, the Constitution gives the status of working languages to English and Indonesian and of national languages to the two dozens of different local indigenous languages. In this multilingual setting, the use of these different languages and the multiple forms of transidiomatic practices - or in other words, transglossic practices (Cox and Assis-Peterson, 2007) - regulate social interactions in diverse social contexts. The main aim of this paper is to characterize hegemonic language ideologies about these languages and these different transglossic practices and their role in the mediation of communicative practices, the construction of linguistic hierarchies and social distinction in the country. This research is based on an ethnographic study about the local language in education policies, which had a focus on the role of Portuguese language teachers in their implementation. The data to be analysed are the metasociolinguistic stances (Jaffe, 2009) of these language teachers in life narratives and the way they position themselves in relation to the different local languages and transglossic practices. Their different stances index the ways the use of different languages are metapragmatically regulated (Wortham, 2001), structuring a specific local language regime (Kroskrity, 2000), but also to the metapragmatics of transglossic practices and the ways they can be part of new processes of enregisterment (Agha, 2004) and the construction of new language regimes. These dynamics of shift in language ideologies in the country points out for a process of social change in the value of languages, language practices and their speakers along the time and the ways that legitimate languages and legitimate speakers are or can be potentially constructed in these different timescales. If by one side, these language regimes can exclude as they are constantly reaffirming borders, by the other side, there are also possibilities for the subversion and redrawing of identities through the creative use of language resources.
