The LANCHART Centre at the University of Copenhagen are accepting
applications for participation until March 10th 2011.

Application for participation
Please fill out the registration form at www.dgcss.dk or send it to course

We accept applications from PhD students, i.e. graduate students who have
finished an MA and are working on a PhD project. Participants should
include an abstract of their project of a maximum of 1 page. Information
about admittance will be sent out to applicants no later than April 1st, 2011.
Those accepted will also receive course material and detailed information
on the practicalities.

Course fee
Participation is free of charge once your application is accepted. The
LANCHART Centre will serve lunches and snacks during the 5 days course
and also two evening meals. The participants will have to cover all other
expenses themselves
- additional meals, lodging and travel costs.

Course certificate and credits
A course certificate will be issued, based on 80% active participation. How
many ECTS credits that will be awarded by completion of the course, will be
announced at www.dgcss.dk by the end of January 2011.

A selection of works will be distributed to the participants upon acceptance.
Participants are expected to read these works before the course.

Course description
To operate in tandem in this context, means that our pairs of internationally
acknowledged faculty and locally based scholars will look at the chosen
subjects from different angles and with a variety of viewpoints. The
advantage of these tandem sessions will therefore be to expose the subject
to the scrutiny of more than one, to expand the spectrum. These efforts will
however be headed towards the same direction of a higher level of
knowledge and a better understanding of the field. Tandems of the
LANCHART Centre International Summer School 2011:
-Socio-phonetics. Variation and change in speech production.
-Nicolai Pharao and Jane Stuart-Smith
-Community studies. Language variation and ethnography.
-Marie Maegaard and Norma Mendoza-Denton
-Media/language studies.
-Pia Quist and Jannis Androutsopoulos
-Tanya Karoli Christensen and Torben Juel Jensen with Sali Tagliamonte

PhD project presentations
The participating PhD students are required to present their own projects
and discuss them with the lecturers and fellow students. Participants should
therefore prepare a presentation lasting a maximum of 30 minutes, which
will be followed by 30 minutes of discussion and feedback from faculty and
audience. Programme will be uploaded at www.dgcss.dk by March 15th

Practical information
The summer school will take place at the University of Copenhagen.
The administration of the LANCHART Centre's address: Njalsgade 136,
building 27, 5th floor, DK-2300 Copenhagen S, DENMARK
Please note that the exact location of each session will be announced upon

Enrolled students will have to take care of their own accommodation. A
budget solution could be the Danhostel Copenhagen City located near the
city centre and a 20 minute walk from the university.
