|07 Apr 2022
The Arqus International Forum on Romance Studies (AIFRS) invites Arqus advanced Bachelor and Master’s students of the Romance languages to a Summer School in Romance Linguistics next September 2022. The School is hosted by the University of Graz under the European Commission scheme “Erasmus+ Blended Intensive Programme 2022″.
The Summer School focuses on the Romance languages in the Americas and in Africa. During a preliminary online phase (from 1st to 14th September), students will receive an introduction to the overall topic and the historical background of Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian in Africa and in the Americas. During the Summer School itself, held in Graz from 18th to 24th September, various classes on morphosyntax, lexicon and language contact, among other topics, will be taught by renowned experts in an interactive environment. Students will also work in small groups on their own to carry out guided research tasks on specific topics of the classes, supervised by the teaching personnel.
This Summer School is multilingual and will be held in Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese (English only serving as a vehicular) aiming at the intercomprehension skills of the participating students.
The School will consist of a preliminary online phase (from 1st to 14th September) and face-to-face classes (from 18th to 24th September). The School will take place at the Department of Romance Studies of the University of Graz (Austria).
Register here from now until 15th July.
