Celebrating ten years of research on language change in real time - on the occasion of the embedding of the LANCHART Centre at the University of Copenhagen (registration closed)
At the LANCHART Centre we have now been carrying out sociolinguistic research in language change and related topics for ten years. We have received generous funding from the Danish National Research Foundation three times during this period, and we are very grateful for this. Based on our large and still growing corpus of spoken language collected in different areas of Denmark we have carried out a series of studies of language variation and change. Ten years is the maximum funding period for a DNRF centre of excellence, which means that this year we are changing from being an independent, externally funded centre into being an integrated part of the University of Copenhagen. We will continue working as a team, and we will continue to function as a centre, even though our conditions have changed.
The seminar will take place on 30th September 2015, and there will be presentations from both LANCHART researchers and a range of our international collaborators, see programme here. The seminar will also mark that Frans Gregersen steps down as head of the LANCHART Centre to be relieved by Marie Maegaard with Torben Juel Jensen as her deputy and representative from the Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics. Registration is closed.
After the seminar there will be a reception and a book launch of the book: Hvad ved vi nu - om danske talesprog? ('What do we know now - about spoken Danish?'). The book is written by researchers at the LANCHART Centre and edited by Frans Gregersen and Tore Kristiansen.
The seminar will be held in English. NB! The seminar i fully booked - and the registration has been closed. Please send an email with name and contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org to get on a waiting list.
