SUNY Geneseo is hosting a virtual session on their Language Field School in Afro-Hispanic Societies study abroad program.
This is a faculty-led, research experience, immersion learning study abroad course in Malabo, the capital of Equatorial Guinea. During intersession 2021-2022, students will learn the ethnic composition of Equatorial Guinea, the global political history of official and vernacular languages, as well as the current governmental language policy. Students will learn and apply sociolinguistic methods to design and conduct their own sociolinguistic research project. To do so, students will learn how to formulate a research question, how to design the project, which are the most appropriate methods to gather data (participant observation, sociolinguistic survey, documenting the linguistic landscape and sociolinguistic interviews), ethical principles of conducting fieldwork, where to focus the analysis and how to write a report.
