 CSLS Summer School 2015: Language in Social Context / Ligerz, Bern, Switzerland 

Host Institution: Universität Bern
Website: http://www.csls.unibe.ch/content/veranstaltungen/csls_summer_school_2015/index_ger.html

Dates: 29-Jun-2015 - 03-Jul-2015
Location: Ligerz, Bern, Switzerland

Focus: The Summer School is being organized by the Center for the Study of Language and Society (CSLS) at the University of Bern and its PhD program Studies in Language and Society, in collaboration with the PhD Program Transcultural Processes in Iberoromania of the Romance Department at the University of Zurich.

The Summer School focuses on three partly overlapping thematic subareas: 

- identity
- mobility
- multilingualism

Minimum Education Level: MA

There will be lectures given by invited speakers who are experts in these areas, as well as short method workshops, and small-group sessions in which PhD students will have a chance to present their research and receive feedback
from an expert in the field as well as from their peers. Taking into account the different language specializations of our students, student presentations will take place in two parallel sessions, one being held in English, and the other covering the Romance languages involved (focusing on Spanish). However, all lectures by the invited speakers will be in English.

Confirmed speakers and workshop leaders:

- Lisa Atalianis (Birkbeck College)
- David Block (Universitat de Lleida)
- Kathryn Campbell-Kibler (The Ohio State University) 
- Sigurd D‘hondt (Ghent University)
- Kristine Horner (The University of Sheffield)
- Johannes Kabatek (Universität Zürich)
- Wolfgang Kesselheim (Universität Zürich)
- Constanze Vorwerg (Universität Bern)

Where and When?
