University of Graz hosts the online workshop “Gender marking in Slavic languages”
|03 Feb 2022
This workshop offered by the University of Graz on 21st February provides insights into gender marking in different Slavic languages (Slovenian, Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian). It discusses the grammatical structure and lexis of the languages, as well as recent debates and changes in different societies that speak these languages.
Participants will be able to familiarise themselves with the ongoing language change in gender marking. The first part of the workshop will include presentations of the current dynamics in modern Slavic languages. The second part is reserved for a round table discussion on the role of these dynamics in teaching Slavic languages as foreign languages. There are no prerequisites for this workshop; knowledge of one or more Slavic languages however is of advantage.
Participants are asked to join in with their microphone and computer camera on.
