Wednesday Seminar: Taiwanese-Texans: Orientation of Language and Cultural Identity

Erica Brozovsky, a Sociolinguistic Researcher at the University of Texas at Austin, USA, will give a talk on Taiwanese-Texans and their language and cultural identity.

The goal of the ongoing sociolinguistics project is to study Taiwanese Americans in Texas (or Taiwanese Texans) in two veins: to explore how they align themselves with the various identities and social groups associated with their national, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds, and to examine how language is used in the construction of these identity alignments. 

 

The talk is open for all!
