The Production of Schoolscapes Andreas Nuottaniemi
In this PhD-project, Andreas Nuottaniemi conducts an ethnographic study in two northern schools with diverse student populations. The aim of the study is to explore how language ideologies and relations of power are being (re)produced in the schoolscape (i.e. the linguistic landscape of the school), with a special focus on the representation and experiences of newly arrived and minority students. The project also examines how the language repertoires of the students as well as attitudes to languages and minority groups among policy makers, staff and students, are being reflected in the LL and how changes over time in the linguistic repertoires of students have come to affect the production of educational spaces.
