Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona postdoc 2016

The C.I.E.N research team at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona is interested in participating as a host centre in the following Marie Curie Action:
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (IF 2016)

CIEN is a research group at the Department of English and German Phylology at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain). The issues studied by CIEN research team are concerned with bilingual and multilingual language use and practices from a critical sociolinguistic perspective. The group addresses questions that have a practical and theoretical importance for understanding language and society. Language is understood both as a non-neutral system but also as a form of social action, that has material consequences in people’s everyday life. Multi-sited ethnography is the main methodological tool together with various kinds of qualitative data which are key to understanding social (in)equality. See also the current projects in which the team is involved.
