Language affects. Values and attitudes are conveyed through language. Belonging and exclusion are defined, produced and reproduced. Social realities are shaped. Language is also an effective means to resist discrimination and exclusion.
On February 21, 2023, Yekmal- Association of Parents from Kurdistan in Germany e. V. invites you to the annual symposium to address interactions of language and power from multidimensional perspectives.
Who is heard – who remains voiceless? How is language used as an instrument of power? How can linguistic empowerment contribute to changing social realities? Such questions will be explored from interdisciplinary perspectives: Educational, linguistic, sociological, and cultural.
The symposium “Language and Power” will take place online. More information will be announced on our website.
