Works-in-Progress Series: Language Policy and Attitudes Toward
Language in Georgia,

March 9, 2011 – Sonya Kleshik (ENG).

At this semester’s seventh Works-in-Progress (WiP) session Sonya
Kleshik will present her research on language policy and attitudes
toward language in Georgia.

The research suggests that in the backdrop of souring Russian-Georgian
relations, language policy in Georgia has become increasingly
anti-Russian. However, evidence suggests that these policies do not
necessarily reflect language attitudes. This talk will discuss the
relationship between language policy and attitudes towards language in
Georgia in terms of language as a part of one's identity. Sonya looks
at attitudes towards Georgian and Russian and whether or not they vary
by generation.

Date: March 9, 2011
Time: 18:15 – 19:30 (Note the change of time this semester)
Location: 16 Zandukeli Street, ISET building, conference room (1st floor)


The WiP is an ongoing academic discussion series based in Tbilisi,
Georgia, that takes place every Wednesday at the International School
of Economics (ISET) building (16 Zandukeli Street). The purpose of the
series is to provide support and productive criticism to those
researching and developing academic projects pertaining to Georgia and
the Caucasus region.
