*Workshop "Language shift and substratum interference in (pre)history"*


11-12 July 2017

Location: Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History (Jena, 

Deadline for abstracts: *1st March 2017*

Invited speakers:

• *John Peterson* (University of Kiel)

• *Sarah Thomason* (University of Michigan)

• *Lars Johanson* (University of Mainz)

The goal of our workshop is to refine the existing methods for 
determining the effects of substratum interference in reconstructed 
languages and to apply the available methods to specific case studies of 
language shift in linguistic prehistory. We also welcome contributions 
on recently attested or historically attested language shift because 
investigating the extent to which more recent history can be taken as a 
model for the remoter past is among our key objectives.

Organizers: *Martine Robbeets, Susanne Maria Michaelis, Martin 
Haspelmath *(MPI-SHH Jena, Leipzig University)
