resources of the Hugo Schuchardt Archive, the project aims to examine
significant aspects of the history of linguistics and of the research networks
that were in place in the second half of the 19th century and the beginning of
the 20th century. The specific focus of the project will revolve around Creole
languages, Romance linguistics, Basque studies, specific topics in general
and historical linguistics, contact languages, and plurilingualism.

conferences and publications); willingness to use electronic means of
information management and to engage in team work; commitment to register
in the PhD program of the Linguistics department (with a possible external co-
supervisor). The theme of the thesis may be directly linked to the project or
more loosely related.
