The course looks into various interconnections between processes of globalization and languages. We will explore how globalization affects languages and, vice versa, the role of languages in globalizing processes. In these processes language(s) may be perceived as different types of resources, but we will be especially concerned here with language and multilingualism in particular as an economic resource in a globalizing world. The course will aim at a broad geographical coverage of relevant issues. The semester-long project work based on weekly assignments will complement the course with a range of real-life inputs to discuss the topics of interest.
