Project

During my stay at Faber I aim to study discourses about language diversity, specifically about the languages in Spain, and the monolingualism created by politicians and intellectuals during the Spanish Transition. This will contribute to the completion of some research I started a few years ago into the creation of public opinion regarding language diversity. Until now I have devoted my research to the role of the press and at Faber I aim to analyse the discourse of politicians and intellectuals.
