II Summer School of Catalan Linguistics (EDELC 2022)
We are very glad to announce that Queen Mary University of London is one of the organisers of the II Summer School of Catalan Linguistics (EDELC 2022), that will be held at the University of Oxford from the 7th to the 10th of September 2022.
This summer school intends to be a meeting point for students and professors of Catalan linguistics based in Catalan-speaking territories and elsewhere. EDELC 2022 is organized by Institut Ramon Llull, the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge, and Queen Mary University of London, in collaboration with the Government of the Balearic Islands (Direcció General de Política Lingüística) and the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB).
EDELC aims at offering training in Catalan linguistics to undergraduate and postgraduate students, with special attention to students from universities outside Catalan-speaking areas who have an interest in Catalan or have already begun to investigate some aspect of its linguistics.
In addition to the introductory courses in different areas of Catalan linguistics, EDELC 2022 will include tutorials dedicated to specific aspects of the courses and a space for the presentation of work by students, which will enable direct interaction with specialists. In this way, EDELC will promote the collaboration, coadvisory and the creation of a mentoring network in Catalan linguistics. With the objective of promoting the research in this specific field, the II Aina Moll award will be given to the best student paper (3.000€). This award is granted by the General Directorate for Language Policy of the Government of the Balearic Islands as recognition to the figure of this filologist and linguist.In this second edition of the EDELC the plenary speaker will be Professor Max Wheeler.
