Language: Reproduction, Opposition, Dissent

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?
