Dates: 07-Aug-2015 - 21-Aug-2015
Location: Munich, Germany
Focus: The Summer Academy in German Linguistics will be held from August 7 to August 21 at the Department of German Studies at the University of Munich. It will feature lectures on three main topics and a special session, in which participants will be able to present their own research.
Minimum Education Level: BA
The Summer Academy is recommended for advanced Master and PhD students, as well as young scientists in relevant fields of study. Prerequisites for participation are a minimum of a degree in German Linguistics and very good command of written and spoken German.
The Summer Academy will cover three central topics:
- Language Change and Grammaticalization
- Linguistic Typology, with focus on the Typology of German Syntax and Morphology
- Modality, Intersubjectivity, and Theory of Mind
The course on language change will focus on variants and invariants in grammaticalization processes. The course on linguistic typology will center on cross-linguistic functions (genotypes) and their language specific phenotypes. The course on intersubjectivity is devoted to linguistic techniques of coding illocutionary force, common ground and modality via epistemicity, evidentiality, and covert or unknown patterns of modality.
The course is complemented by a cultural program organized by the Munich International Summer Academy (MISU).
