‘Less-than-fluent’ and culturally connected: language learning and cultural fluency as research methodology

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to critically explore language learning and cultural fluency as a research methodology. Deploying an auto-ethnographic approach, I scrutinise my programme of language learning and forays into the cultural to highlight how knowledge of the cultural contexts of a language, and not just the language itself, have provided nuanced insights into Polish cultural memory and identity. The paper's specific contribution is to agitate for a greater recognition of the value of cultural understanding and language learning as a distinct methodological approach. I track how the process of learning the Polish language and its cultural intricacies has included both acts of speaking and comprehending how words are (re)presented in their cultural contexts.
