CIVIS announces the opening of the registration for the short CIVIS programme entitled “Linguistic cultures and communities in Europe: fieldwork, workshops and exhibition” The activities will be running in a blended format from March to July 2022, but the overall engagement per student is approximately 2 weeks.
All students in receipt of a mobility grant will travel to Italy. For this purpose, CIVIS offers 20 scholarships.
“Linguistic cultures and communities in Europe: fieldwork, workshops and exhibition” is a collaborative research project, rather than a course. Each student will be actively involved in gathering data for the project, and in the organization of the final exhibition, which is the main expected result of the activity.
Main topics addressed within the course “Linguistic cultures and communities in Europe: fieldwork, workshops and exhibition” are:
- Language biographies within communities;
- Mapping linguistic cultures(s) in your geographical area today and in the past;
- Tangible and Intangible Cultural Heritage.
This CIVIS activity is open to Bachelor’s, Master and PhD students at one of the CIVIS member universities with a good level of English or Italian.
Interested students should send an e-mail with one single PDF file including a brief CV and a motivation letter. Please indicate in your motivation letter if you are interested in receiving the 3 ECTS that can be awarded to participating students.
The deadline for sending the document is 12 March 2022 and the selected students will be notified on March 2022.
For more information, please write at email@example.com.
The evaluation will be carried out by the academic staff at all the participating institutions. It will consist of an assessment of the projects submitted by the students.
Details about the programme “Linguistic cultures and communities in Europe: fieldwork, workshops and exhibition” are available on the CIVIS website, here.
