Dissertation: Linguistic/political anthropology of diasporas
Dissertation category: Any
Dissertation theme:
Short summary: I'd like to study ethnic minority and diasporic groups in the UK or elsewhere to see how language/politics affect identity.
Detailed summary: I might look at linguistic phenomena such as code-switching and bilingualism and relate them to social issues like multiculturalism, identity and representation. I'd like to take an ethnographic approach backed up with quantitative data, probably studying South Asian or Japanese groups.
