Description of the research programme
The research programme "Romani language repertoires in an open world" examines the complexity of linguistic repertoires in Romani communities that are undergoing changes through increased mobility and transnational networking. Drawing on current concepts in critical sociolinguistics, notions of language as localised practice, and methodological frameworks such as translanguaging and metrolingualism, the team assesses data from linguistic interaction as well as meta-discourses on language collected through observations in multiple research sites in the Nordic countries, central Europe, the UK and Latin America. The programme takes a holistic approach to language practice, observing, recording and analysing face-to-face interaction, life history narratives, interaction on the move, discourse in institutional contexts, social media, and emerging literacy, giving attention to plurilingual and multi-dialect practices.
