In December 2015, the research training group “Frequency Effects in Language” and the Freiburg Institute for Advanced Studies (FRIAS) will be hosting a workshop titled “Oral History Meets Linguistics”. Oral history archives offer many possibilities for language-related analyses. So far, however, they have been used in linguistics only to a limited extent. The workshop aims at bringing together linguistic approaches to oral histories in different target languages and discussing possibilities for a closer collaboration between linguists and oral historians. Potential questions include: What can linguistic uses of historical narratives look like? What are opportunities and challenges of using such archives in linguistic research? In what ways could oral historians profit from a closer collaboration? Which archives as yet undetected by linguists could be used for future research?

We welcome presentations on research projects at the interface between linguistics and oral history research.

If you are interested in submitting an abstract (300 words maximum) for an oral presentation, please contact katja.roller@frequenz.uni-freiburg.de (GRK DFG 1624).

Deadline: 01.05.2015

Date of workshop: 03.-04.12.2015
