I study language variation as a geographic phenomenon. To better understand and represent the problem of linguistic diversity and its evolution, I combine a cartographic and historical approach with a field investigation fueled by in situ observations and interviews.
Field of research
In continuation of my thesis - Mapping Other and Self: Space, Language, and Identity in the Modern European Geographical Imagination of Central Asia - and my research at the Institute of Urban Planning and Alpine Geography on the borders and names of places, the investigation that I will carry out this year will focus on the way in which populations appropriate toponyms relating to mountain environments, landscapes and lifestyles.
