Focus: Collecting and documenting informal and alternative place names
Minimum Education Level: No Minimum

Description:
Informal and alternative place names constitute a highly symbolic and informative component of societies' intangible cultural heritage. Given ideological power dynamics and processes of standardisation, these names are often lost. However, it remains important to collect them. This workshop aims to equip researchers with the free, open-source tools to do so. The workshop is presented by Dr Gerhard Rampl, who in addition to serving as the Chair of the Austrian Names Board, also conducted similar studies.

This workshop will be of value to researchers as well as practitioners in the field of place names research.
