Meeting Description
Following the success of the LINEE project's Training Institutes in
Brussels (2007), Bolzano (2008) and Prague (2009, 2010 and 2011),
doctoral students researching various aspects of multilingualism in
Europe will once again meet for the exchange of ideas and training.
They will be provided with the opportunity for interaction with
renowned resource persons, both local and from abroad, in a number of
different settings (lecture and seminar settings, poster sessions,
informal encounters, meals). Prague, a city known in particular for
its aesthetic value, has been a symbol of intellectual and cultural
engagement and language studies for decades. Since 1989, it has been
gradually developing into a site of emerging multilingualism, the
experience of which participants in the Training Institute are invited
to share.

Thematic Areas
- Language, Culture and Identity
- Language Policy and Planning
- Multilingualism and Education
- Language and Economy

Resource persons
- Galina Bolden, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, USA
- Rita Franceschini, Freie Universitaet Bozen / Libera Universita di
Bolzano, Italy
- Patrick Studer, Zuercher Hochschule fuer Angewandte Wissenschaften,
Zuerich, Switzerland
- Iwar Werlen, Universitaet Bern, Switzerland

Students will also have the opportunity to interact with local experts
in the areas of multilingualism in the Czech Republic.

Applying
Qualified applicants will be students working on a Ph.D. degree. All
participants are expected to present a poster. The subject of the
posters may be the participant's doctoral research or other projects
in which the participant is involved. Acceptable topics are those
which relate to the four thematic areas. To apply, please send
abstracts of approximately 250 words to Oliver Engelhardt at
training at linee.info by May 20, 2012.

Costs
There is no fee for participation. However, participants cover their
own travel, accommodation and meal costs.

Venue
The Training Institute will take place at the Faculty of Arts, Charles
University, located in the historical heart of Prague. From the
faculty, there are exquisite views of the Prague Castle and Vltava
River. Participants will have access to the internet and the faculty
library. In the vicinity of the faculty, there are a number of
restaurants where the participants can have lunches and dinners.

Accommodation
Participants are free to arrange their accommodation, choosing from a
broad range of options, either in the historical center of Prague, or
in its surroundings. There will also be the option of ordering
