Show notes for Episode 52

Here are the show notes for Episode 52, a migration discourses bumper episode, in which we feature two interviews. First off, Dan and Raj talk to Professor Charlotte Taylor of the University of Sussex about:

  • Why corpus linguistics can refresh the parts other approaches cannot reach

  • Discourses around migration and the metaphors that are often used - water, commodity and them/us

  • Why discourses around migration are usually about immigration

  • Why nostalgia is such a powerful theme

  • Whether the discourses around migration are worse now than they have been in the past

  • Tools for students analysing language discourses

We also talk to Ana Gavalas of the Migrants’ Rights Network about:

  • The work of their organisation and why it matters

  • The ‘Words Matter’ campaign they have been running

  • Why migration is linked to wider struggles

  • Why challenging dangerous migration myths involves critically engaging with language.
