Inhalt: In linguistics, the saying "Actions speak louder than words" conceals the fact that in using language, in producing words, we act and change the world. A request uttered by a friend has to be responded to; an apology changes the way we feel about someone. In this course on pragmatics, we look at how native speakers of different cultures "do things with words" (Austin 1962) and "how learners come to know how-to-say-what-to-whom-when.” (Bardovi-Harlig 2013:68-69). We also discuss how pragmatic competence, an important component of communicative competence, can be taught and we examine how well EFL textbooks are suited to the challenge of equiping learners for communicating in the foreign language. Students will be expected to engage in empirical research, i.e. to collect and analyse data in groups. The course is conducted through the medium of English. A written informative abstract for the conference program (group work) is to be submitted on 20.08.2020 (max. 200 words) (10%) Given the challenges posed by COVID-19, the course will be an online course. Registered participants will receive a code to register for a moodle course.

Inhalt: This course deals with the relationship between language and society. We focus on the diversity found in language use in society and how this relates to the language classroom. Our focus will be on gender. We investigate how sexism is expressed and transmitted through language, how men and women use language differently in constructing their social identities and how gender is portrayed in children's literature and in the public arena. Students will be expected to engage in empirical research, i.e. to collect and analyse data in groups. A group presentation taking the form of a poster presentation or a powerpoint presentation (in exceptional cases) on 3.09.2020 (total time: 15 minutes, divided into 10 mins presentation + 5 minutes discussion) (90%) A written informative abstract for the conference program (group work) is to be submitted on 20.08.2020 (max. 200 words) (10%) Given the challenges posed by COVID-19, the course will be an online course.
