SLAV 540: Language and Identity in East-Central Europe and the Former Soviet Union (3)

The course treats the formation of modern nation states as defined by language, where the history of the linguistic community played a central, if mythic role. Focus is on sociolinguistic case studies of the connection between language and identity in the former USSR and Yugoslavia, as well as transnational groups defined by common language and culture. The impact of global English, EU membership, and migration on language and identity issues are also discussed. LEC
