How is Language Work Implicated in Navigating Precarity? Young Adults in Great Yarmouth

Research output: Other contribution


Doctoral Research Project: Explores the correlated increases in work that requires the deployment of linguistic performance and work that is insecure, uncertain, and unstable. What are the implications for engaging in language work for employment when life is defined by casual, part-time, and short-term opportunities? How is language work reimagined (as commodity, capital, skill?)? How does this affect participants' linguistic identities?

Project is a 12-month ethnography centred on young adults in Great Yarmouth, UK - which, as a coastal town, has a unique relationship to both language work and precarity.
