Call for papers: Workshop “Oral History Meets Linguistics”

In December 2015, the research training group “Frequency Effects in Language” and the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS) will be hosting a workshop titled “Oral History Meets Linguistics”. Oral history archives offer many possibilities for language-related analyses. So far, however, they have been used in linguistics only to a limited extent. The workshop aims at bringing together linguistic approaches to oral histories in different target languages and discussing possibilities for a closer collaboration between linguists and oral historians. Potential questions include: What can linguistic uses of historical narratives look like? What are opportunities and challenges of using such archives in linguistic research? In what ways could oral historians profit from a closer collaboration? Which archives as yet undetected by linguists could be used for future research?

We welcome presentations on research projects at the interface between linguistics and oral history research.

If you are interested in submitting an abstract (300 words maximum) for an oral presentation, please contact katja.roller@frequenz.uni-freiburg.de (GRK DFG 1624).

Deadline: 01.05.2015

Date of workshop: 03.-04.12.2015

Linguistic representations of identity. Sociolinguistic models and historical linguistics @ Bergamo

Linguistic representations of identity. Sociolinguistic models and historical linguistics @ Bergamo | Bergamo | Lombardia | Italy

The International Conference Linguistic representations of identity. Sociolinguistic models and historical linguistics aims at illustrating and discussing the final results of the PRIN national research project coordinated by Piera Molinelli (Università di Bergamo). The main purpose of this project has been to investigate the dynamics of the relationship between identity and otherness by focusing on ancient languages ranging from the Mediterranean area to India, and on the main linguistic and socio-cultural traits of the communities where the same languages were used. These research topics have been addressed by combining historical linguistics, sociolinguistic and ethnolinguistic methodological and theoretical approaches. Members from all the Research Units, namely, Bergamo, Cagliari, Siena, Pisa, Viterbo, Roma Sapienza and Pescara, will take part in the Conference.
