Work Groups

Work Groups

The network is constituted with dynamic work groups in the sense that the work groups are self-organized around selected topics. Therefore, both the number of work groups and their members have been subject to changes following the progression in the research topics and the interdisciplinary approach. There is also a lively interaction between the work groups with exchange of information and thereby promoting the interdisciplinary research in the network.

Half way through the project, the work groups are testing selected linguistic methods and analytic tools on educational media from Denmark, Germany, Finland, Poland, Switzerland and Austria. The research is concentrated within the following subject areas:   

  • Corpus linguistic reconstruction of concepts of Europe in educational media
  • Multimodal/multicodal representation of concepts of Europe in educational media
  • Thematic contents of concepts of Europe in educational media
  • Lexical-semantic EUROPA concepts in educational media: Danish as a foreign language in Germany - German as a foreign language in Finland
  • Lexically and semantically bound concepts of Europe in educational media: history textbooks in Denmark, Austria and Switzerland
  • Lexically and semantically bound concepts of Europe in Danish and German learner’s knowledge
