This is the fourth summer school organised by the Historical Sociolinguistics Network (HISON) and it will offer classes by leading experts on modern and historical sociolinguists.

This year we will be in the fine city of Brugge / Bruges - whose city centre is a UNESCO world heritage site.

Our teachers this year will be:

Ana Deumert (University of Cape Town): Historical Sociolinguistics in a Colonial World, African Perspectives

Martin Durrell (University of Manchester): Linguistic Standardisation and the Nation in Europe

Susan Fitzmaurice (University of Sheffield): The Uses of Social Networks Analysis for Social Description in Historical Sociolinguistics

Anthony Lodge (University of St Andrews): Aspects of the Sociolinguistic History of Paris

Terttu Nevalainen (University of Helsinki): Historical Sociolinguistics as Corpus linguistics

Wim Vandenbussche (Vrije Universiteit Brussel): Back to the Sources. Hands-on Research, Problems and Mysteries in Archives for Young Researchers

Hans Van de Velde (Universiteit Utrecht): When Apparent becomes Real. The Interplay of Synchronic and Diachronic Phonological Variation in Dutch

There will be six hours of classes per day, so there is plenty of time to explore the city. You will have the opportunity to present your own research at a special session and there will be an excursion for the historically-touristically minded.

The school will last for one week and the cost of 350 Euros includes accommodation, tuition, and an excursion. If you register and pay in full before May 1st, 2010, we will give you a discount of 50 Euros, i.e. you will only pay 300 Euros.

Please note that there are only 40 places available.

Registration is now open at www.bris.ac.uk/german/hison/summerschool2010
