A colleague in the Welsh department and I have been running a sociolinguistics reading group since October. There are about 8 of us involved and we meet once a month (Thursday morning) and talk about an article.
Here’s our reading list so far:
James Walker and Miriam Meyerhoff (2013). Studies of the Community and the Individual. In R. Bayley, R. Cameron & C. Lucas (eds.), The Oxford Handbook of Sociolinguistics. 175-194.
Ben Rampton (2013) Styling in a Language Learned Later in Life. Modern Language Journal 97(2) 360-382.
February (tbc – but likely to be something on translanguaging)
