Focus: From September 18th to September 28th, the University of Konstanz offers a summer school programme on the subject Multilingualism in Western Europe: France and Spain. The programme is organised by the departments of Literature and Linguistics at the University of Konstanz together with the Centre IKER UMR 5478 (CNRS, Université de Pau et du Pays de l'Adour et Université Bordeaux Montaigne). The programme will be coordinated by the professors Georg A. Kaiser (Universität Konstanz) und Ricardo Etxepare (IKER). The summer school aims at discussing concepts of multilingualism, language contact as well as cultural and linguistic consequences of multilingualism on individuals and in society. The interdisciplinary project is targeted at young researchers (in their PhD studies or at advanced MA-level and teaching studies). A special focus will lie on the situation of regional languages spoken in Spain and the metropolitan France, in particular Bask, Catalan, Occitan and Breton. Especially the differences in the two countries regarding local and minority languages will be subject to the courses. The summer school is comprised of an introductory course on “Theory and Methods of Multilingualism and the Individual” which will be attended by all participants and four subject specific courses taking place at the same time and concentrating on either a linguistic topic or literary and cultural studies. The working languages will be French, German, Spanish and English. We expect passive language competence in either French or German.
