We are pleased to announce that the 7th Budapest Uralic Workshop will be held in Budapest, Hungary, February 3-5, 2014.
The workshop is organized by the Department of Finno-Ugric Studies and Historical Linguistics, Research Institute for Linguistics, Hungarian Academy Sciences.
This three-day workshop provides a meeting place for researchers in the areas of Uralic studies to present their research findings in a stimulating and interactive environment. The workshop aims to promote collaborative opportunities between scholars, introduce new perspectives and reflect on current research and practice in various subfields of Uralic linguistics. The focus of this year’s workshop is on multilingual Uralic speakers who, due to their contact with other languages, prompt to innovate their own speech, induce structural change and thus shape the process of language change. Although societal and economic processes also influence the direction and pace of language change and the fate of a minority language and identity, the role of the individual is of utmost importance, especially in maintaining minority languages and identities.
