After Babel

Perspectives on Language [Vera-Kögelmaier]


Hey there, welcome to my Blog!
My Name is Chris, I am from Germany and at the moment I am a student at the university of Maastricht.
This Blog is a project for a course of mine, called “After Babel- Language Policies in Europe”, in which we will have to examine different topics from a sociolinguistic point of view. This assignment is a completely new expereince for my in two respects: First of all, I never wrote a Blog before. Usually i do not even post anything  on social media, so you can imagine what a burden this assignment is going to be for me. My knowledge of the digital world tends towards zero!
Secondly, I am not a sociolinguist! In Maastricht I am studying European studies, but in Munich (the city I usually live and study in) I am a student of sociology. The Analysis of Language policies in Europe is a interdisciplinary discourse and I am looking forward to share my perspectives on certain topics even though I am new in this field. Nonetheless, I am glad to have you here and I hope you’ll have fun while reading my posts! Leave a comment whenever you want to, I would appreciate it a lot! 🙂
