The International Ivar Aasen Conference 1996
14-16 November, University of Oslo
_____________________________________

The International Ivar Aasen Conference marks the centenary of
Norway's great language planner and ideologue, Ivar Aasen (1813-1896).
As part of the centennial celebration, The Ivar Aasen Foundation and
The Department of Scandinavian Studies and Comparative Literature at
The University of Oslo have joined forces to arrange an international
conference.

The main theme of the conference is language contact, with particular
emphasis on multilingualism in a minority/majority perspective, and
norms, status and standardisation. Emphases will be multidisciplinary
as well as interdisciplinary. Current linguistic research and language
policies in both Europe and Southern Africa will form the themes
during the first two days, while the final day will provide an
overview of Ivar Aasen's work in a Norwegian as well as a European
perspective.

You can find our registration form and more information about the
conference on our web-pages: URL: http://www.hf.uio.no/inl/aasen/ The
registration form is also to be found in our conference brochure.
