The Ibero-Romance Languages in Europe and America (contacts, influences, and convergences)
The 2nd International Seminar in Romance Studies at the University of Granada is a Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programme, and consists of a preliminary online module and a phase with physical presence of the participants in Granada. The Seminar is a part of the activities of the Arqus International Forum on Romance Studies, a scientific network formally founded in 2021 within the Arqus European University Alliance.
The seminar itself focuses on language contact phenomena, mutual influences, and convergent tendencies of the Ibero-Romance languages in Europe and America. During the preliminary online module (2–6 October 2023) the participating students will be introduced to general issues of Ibero-Romance contact linguistics and to the historical circumstances, which lead to the existence of Ibero-Romance languages on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. During the main event at the Facultad de Filosofía y Letras of the University of Granada (9–14 October 2023), internationally renowned experts will give interactive classes on various topics concerning the general frame of the seminar, such as
a) the diachronic evolution of Ibero-Romance languages in Europe and America
b) the contact with other Romance languages in Europe and America
c) minority and minoriticized Ibero-Romance languages in Europe and America
The International Seminar is multilingual and endorses the use of all Romance languages, as well as English as a vehicular, if necessary, aiming at the improvement of the students’ plurilingual and intercomprehensional skills.
Advanced bachelor students and master students from the universities of Graz, Leipzig, Padua, Minho, and Granada.
