Meeting Description:

The second DYLAN doctoral school offers doctoral students access to novel
analytical perspectives on multilingualism, with a focus on opening avenues
for potential future interdisciplinary developments. Furthermore, it aims
at enabling participants to position their own work with respect to various
strands of research, both in order to assess how the latter question their
respective research assumptions, and in order to allow students to show how
their own work calls into question assumptions frequently made in existing
research. The second DYLAN doctoral school is designed to emphasise the
'interdisciplinary ethos' of the DYLAN project.

The doctoral school aims at fostering personalised interaction between
instructors and students as well as among students. It can accommodate 12
to 15 doctoral students who are actively involved (presenting and
discussing their work), plus students who do not intend to present their
work, but who wish to listen to the presentations and take part in the

The doctoral school will focus on the three following topics. An entire day
will be devoted to each:

-Incentives in Language Behaviour by Prof. Dr. José Ramón Uriarte
(University of the Basque Country Bilbao, Department of Economics).
-Models of Language Dynamics by Prof. Dr. Bengt-Arne Wickström (Humboldt
Universität Berlin, Department of Economics).
-Socio-psychological Dimensions of Individual Multilingualism by Prof. Dr.
Jean-Marc Dewaele (Birkbeck College, University of London, Department of
European Cultures and Languages).
