The Center for the Study of Language and Society (CSLS) at the University of Bern seeks to support research on language and social inequality in the Swiss context and to promote the importance of language and language issues for the creation of a more just and equal society.
As part of this goal, the CSLS has created the CSLS Prize in Language and Social Justice. The prize is awarded annually to a junior researcher (PhD student or early postdoc) who has conducted research on language, inequality and social (in)justice in Switzerland. The winner will be awarded a prize of CHF 3'000, intended to support them in communicating their research findings to a non-academic public and/or in developing real-world applications of their research. The winner will also be invited to present a guest lecture about their research in December 2022.
