Workshop „Romanian in the context of migration“


Workshop „Romanian in the context of migration“
Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München
Institut für Romanische Philologie

The workshop will take place online (via Zoom).

Start: 17 July 2020
End: 18 July 2020

As a result of migration, over 25% of Romanian L1-Speakers now live outside of Romania and the Republic of Moldova. Many second-generation speakers have also added to that number. The main areas of settlement in Europe are Italy, Germany, Great Britain, Spain, Portugal and France; outside of Europe they include the United States, Canada and Argentina. As a result of this situation, there are numerous different types of language contact, not only with the various Romance languages, but also with languages which differ significantly in terms of genetic heritage and typology. This contact opens up a wide variety of research perspectives in the fields of systemic functional linguistics, variationist linguistics, sociolinguistics and also cognitive linguistics. The aim of our colloquium is to provide scientists working on related issues with a forum in which they can exchange and present their projects.

Workshop languages:
German, English, French, Italian and Spanish.
