Going to work, shopping, meeting friends – many of us wander our city streets every day.
But, immersed in our daily interests, do we really care about what is happening in our city? If we notice some, do we make sure to read all the city signs, roads, advertisements, commercial, administrative etc that are trying to get our attention and send us very different messages? Beyond that, do we notice that all of these signs speak to us in different languages?
Why are some signs in only one language, and others in several? And the signs in several languages, why is there only English and German, while the population living and visiting this city represents a much greater linguistic diversity? Why do some tags have the same sentence in both languages, while others only translate part of the sentence, as if the rest of the sentence isn’t worth translating? Still others “play” with languages ​​and confuse them in the same sentence … In fact, all these paintings represent the linguistic landscape of our city, and all these questions we have just asked are only the beginning of thinking to understand how and the cultural diversity of the inhabitants of our city is taken into account and appreciated or not in our cities.
Inspired by all these questions, students and teachers at Henry Meek College in Molsheim, accompanied by our team of researchers, have prepared a course with hilarious questions through the linguistic landscape of Molsheim. Discovering this course is what we would like to offer you in this edition of Fête de la Science.
