Geolingual Studies Workshop – Day 3

September 30, 2023

On the final day of the Geolingual Studies workshop, the highly anticipated session titled ‘Language and Space during the COVID Pandemic’ took center stage. The gathering delved deep into the impact of the pandemic on language and its interaction with physical surroundings. Ninja Schulz, a renowned expert in the field, captivated the audience with a captivating exploration of Twitter discourses during COVID-19 lockdowns in Edinburgh, analyzing the diverse perspectives from different wards. Zuzana Elliott, an insightful researcher, presented her groundbreaking work on language, migration, and the role of Twitter in the context of London. The session also featured the brilliant contribution of Dominik Kremer, who shed light on the regionalization of the pandemic through the use of spatial metaphors and toponyms during its early days. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all participants for their valuable scientific exchange, fostering the potential for future collaborations that hold tremendous promise.
