Imagined speech communities: A new perspective on language and nationalism
Jasper recently finished his undergraduate degree in International Relations and Linguistics at the University of Aberdeen, where he focused his work on the intersections between language and politics, especially from a theoretical point of view. He is now continuing this work through a master’s programme in Political Theory at the University of Oxford. He is passionate about combining insights from different disciplines, and in his work, he draws on theories from politics, linguistics, discourse studies, sociology and philosophy. Jasper believes that an imaginative and critical approach combining different approaches and disciplines is what drives social science forward.
