Language: Reproduction, Opposition, Dissent

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Again talking... Language is an important topic, because knowledge is produced, transformed and diffused through language. If we want to resist, we also have to re-talk, to learn counter-talking and basically counter-thinking.

We question ourselves about:

  • Who counter-talks against what? Does some kinds of counter-languages exist? autonomous, antagonistic languages?
  • How can we link activist and academic discurses?
  • How does knowledgetransfer looks like?

but also:

  • TalkingPower: Which voices are heard? How can we make ourselves heared?
  • Do translations of knowledgebodys help to render divers knowledge accessible?
  • How does exclusion through language works? who or what do we want to exclude or include through specific language use?
