About the event

In this talk, Professor Unn Røyneland will discuss language and identity negotiations, metalinguistic commentary, and language policing online, looking at a rap video and YouTube commentary where language, place and belonging are thematised.

Professor Unn Røyneland looks at how identities are negotiated online through evoking common categories, activities and attributes. The analysis shows that hybrid identities seem to be particularly difficult to negotiate and are often rejected and policed along with the mixed linguistic practices with which they tend to be associated.
