(Non-)standard in language - politics - culture
All lectures deal with the problem of the category of standard vs. nonstandard. In the lecture of PD. Dr Tomasz Kamusella is shown a politicized use of language for statehood building as standard in Central Europe and nonstandard in the global perspective. In the lecture by prof. Marc Greenberg will deal with the issue of the Montenegrin standardization project and showing the relationship to other post-Yugoslav standardization projects (particularly with regard to the Croatian language). Prof. Luchia Antonova, on the other hand, looks for common standard elements in regional, and therefore non-standard, variants of the Bulgarian language. Finally, linguistic issues and issues of linguistic politics are referred to the representations of non-standard, minority groups in contemporary Bulgarian cinematography (in the lecture by prof. Alexander Donev).
Lectures and meetings will be held in remote form on MS Teams platform.
