Seminar 3: Identity Dynamics

Wherever multilingualism and multiculturalism are present, questions of identity are at stake. The issue of identities has figured prominently in recent years in various disciplines. They have also been at the core of much of the political discourses in the Nordic and Baltic countries when addressing citizenship, belonging, hybridity and migration. In this era of mobility, when the needs, criteria and hierarchies of identity are debated, our aim in this seminar is to explore:

  • How identities are shaped and influenced by language, culture, and mobility?
  • What kinds of theoretical and methodological concepts and frameworks would be best suited to capture the fluidity, hybridity and multiplicity of identities in diverse contexts?
