Training Institute in Multilingualism Research

Location: Prague, Czech Republic
Contact: Oliver Engelhardt

Meeting URL: http://linee.info/linee/events/training-institutes.html

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Sociolinguistics

Meeting Description:

Following the success of LINEE Training Institutes in Brussels (2007),
Bolzano (2008) and Prague (2009 and 2010), doctoral students
researching various aspects of multilingualism in Europe will once again
meet for the exchange of ideas and training. They will be provided with the
opportunity for interaction with renowned resource persons, both local and
from abroad, in a number of different settings (lecture and seminar settings,
poster sessions, informal encounters, meals). Prague, a city known for its
aesthetic value in particular, has for years been a symbol of intellectual and
cultural engagement and language studies. Since 1989, it has been
gradually developing into a site of emerging multilingualism, the experience
of which participants in the Training Institute are invited to share.

Thematic Areas
- Language, Culture and Identity
- Language Policy and Planning
- Multilingualism and Education
- Language and Economy

Resource persons
- Erzsébet Barát, Szegedi Tudományegyetem, Hungary
- Rita Franceschini, Freie Universitaet Bozen / Libera Università di Bolzano,
Italy
- Peter Weber, Hochschule fuer Angewandte Sprachen, Muenchen,
Germany
- Iwar Werlen, Universitaet Bern, Switzerland

Students will also have the opportunity to interact with local experts in the
areas of nationalism studies and the Vietnamese community in the Czech
Republic.

Course set-up

Four resource persons (one for each thematic area) will each hold one 90-
minute session in lecture format and one 90-minute session in seminar
format. In addition, there will be two lectures by scholars working in the
Czech context (including Prof. Miroslav Hroch). The doctoral students will
present their work during two poster sessions (with a brief oral component).
There will also be a thematic excursion relating to linguistic minorities, and
several social events.
