Geolingual Studies is an innovative area of research and teaching which takes a decisively applied linguistic approach and combines methodologies from linguistics, geography, digital humanities and natural language processing.
As researchers from the Department of English linguistics, we collaborate with a team of researchers from the Earth Observation Research Hub and the German Aerospace Center, who specialise in satellite remote sensing. We aim to assess the interrelationship between physical and socio-cultural space from a new perspective.
For this, the description of the physical environment is complemented by the linguistic assessment of social networks, identity constructions, discourses and the perception of space in a global and culture-specific context. We seek to bring together researchers from different fields and establish theories and methodologies that lend themselves to comparative analyses of language and space.
