"Sexual integration" och Dialect in the periphery


Kristine Køhler Mortensen håller ett seminarium i två delar där hon presenterar sina tidigare och nuvarande forskningsprojekt.

PART 1: "Sexual integration" - Sexuality in contemporary global migration
The focus of this project is to study recently introduced compulsory teaching of Danish asylum seekers in 'Danish sexual morals' with the aim of unveiling the ways in which sexual behavior is being attached to culture and nationality and how specific conceptions of intimacy come to be understood as crucial and decisive for the integration in a late modern Western society. The project is designed as a two-part analysis combining both text-based discourse analysis and practice-oriented ethnography. The empirical context of Denmark will work as foundation for a larger discussion of sexuality and migration in Scandinavian society.

PART 2: Dialect in the periphery - Standardization as sociolinguistic change
The aim of this project has been to advance the understanding of language standardization in contemporary society by tracking the significance of variation in people¿s everyday lives. This project was conducted in a team at University of Copenhagen and forms a comparative study of three different rural speech communities in Denmark (Southern Jutland, Northern Jutland and Bornholm). By studying trajectories of language standardization across different geographical places and communicative contexts, the project demonstrates how language standardization may seem as a unidirectional movement (from a macro perspective), but in fact it takes on very different routes when studied and compared on a micro level. In this presentation I will shortly present the quantitative and comparative results and then focus in more detail on the speech community of Hirtshals in which I have conducted ethnography. Finally, I will point to some of the connections between this former research project and my current project at the University of Gothenburg.
