Language Contact in Contemporary Europe

Erasmus Summer School 2014

Aufgrund der internationalen Ausrichtung der Summer School ist diese Seite nur auf Englisch verfügbar.

About 40 students and a dozen instructors meet in Greifswald to study language contact in contemporary Europe. This Erasmus Summer School is innovative, interdisciplinary, and relevant for the understanding of the current language situation in Europe, especially in northeastern Europe. With partners from Estonia, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, and Sweden, we offer a unique opportunity to look at specific examples from the Baltic-Finnic-Germanic-Slavic borderlands around the Baltic Sea. We will look at language contact from various angles: linguistics, politics, law, literature, and other fields of study contribute to the overall picture. We cordially welcome you to join us in Greifswald :) !
