CALS Webinars, Autumn 2021

This series of invited webinars titled ‘Varieties of English’ will explore the diversity of the English language today and discuss methods of categorisation, description of features, use and status of contemporary varieties of English around the world. As the English language and its varieties are located within histories of expansion, (post-)colonialism, and globalisation, many of the webinars investigate these histories and contemporary issues. Topics will span critical issues of language variation and change, such as social indexing, attitudes and standardisation, English-based creoles and pidgins and English as a global language.

The series has been specifically organised for the benefit of the MA Applied Linguistics (International) module LI6051 ‘Varieties of English’ (coordinated by Dr Maria Rieder) and will be pitched at postgraduate students, but all are very welcome to attend.
