Date: 22nd – 24th July 2021
Place: University of Graz
Institut für Romanistik
Languages: Romance languages and idioms as well as non-Romance contact varieties
The workshop is designed to give participants the occasion to present new findings and, especially, non-canonic approaches, as well as rather unusual object languages and to discuss them with colleagues from a wide array of linguistic disciplines. The contributions should be empirically and/or theoretically based. The main focus of the workshop is the crossing of theoretical or linguistic boundaries and the application of new empirical methods on hitherto unknown or less studied idioms. This does not exclude studies on standard languages.
Talks on already advanced research and impulsive talks (i.e. new ideas or plans for future research) are equally welcome.
Abstracts (ca. 300 words) in English, Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese or German can be sent to either stefan.koch(at)uni-graz.at or katharina.gerhalter(at)uni-graz.at until 15th May 2021. Notification of acceptance until 31st May 2021.
A publication (peer reviewed) is the explicit objective of the workshop. As of now, manuscripts are to be sent until 31st December 2021.
The workshop is planned as a direct encounter with the participants being physically present in Graz. Should the need arise (individually or generally), a hybrid or fully digital format will be chosen. Being aware of possible travel restrictions or health concerns we wish to facilitate a participation for every accepted scholar.
