Andreas Candefors Stæhr - Speaker

Sociolinguistic reflexivity and normativity in social media interaction (Andreas Stæhr, University of Copenhagen) Though investigation of social media practices among young people from different places in Denmark I will discuss what role social media interaction plays in these young peoples’ everyday lives by focusing on the (interrelated) themes of sociolinguistic normativity and linguistic reflexivity. More specifically I aim to discuss: 1. how spoken face-to-face and digitally mediated written language practices co-contribute to similar processes of enregisterment 2. what insights we can gain about widely recognizable sociolinguistic registers by looking at linguistic practices on social media 3. how social media interaction can be said to foster sociolinguistic reflexivity. I study this by looking at Facebook data, self-recordings (made by the participants) and interviews collected among young people from Copenhagen and three geographically peripheral places in Denmark.
