Learning objectives

The public space of metropolises as well as medium and small-sized towns is profoundly marked by the historic and contemporary traces of linguistic practices, such as graffiti, informal messages, public and commercial signs. These signs are produced by different actors and also carry out different functions. Linguistic Landscape (LL) research investigates the distribution of monolingual and multilingual signs in the public sphere, their linguistic and semiotic features, as well as their functions and evolution over time. In doing so, it aims to provide insights into the status of historic and migration-related minority languages in a specific territory.

In this web-based training, students will be introduced to the main theoretical approaches and empirical methods for mapping linguistic diversity in public spaces. Particular attention is dedicated to an overview of the current state of LL research in three EDUC areas, that is, Brandenburg and Berlin, Brno and Czech Republic, Cagliari and Sardinia.

At the end of the web-based training, participants will:
- be able to describe the complex present and past sociolinguistic situations in Berlin and Brandenburg, Brno and Prague, Cagliari and Sardinia.
- become familiar with the current state of research on LLs in these three areas and develop awareness about the distribution of LL signs in their own territory.
- be able to discuss advantages and disadvantages of some theoretical-methodological approaches concerning data collection and analysis in LL.
- be able to analyze monolingual and multilingual LL signs, describe their functions and link their features to the status of different minority languages and the language ideologies toward them in a given territory.
- be able to evaluate and defend responses to a range of linguistic landscape issues.

Details of the learning scenario


The web-based training is an asynchronous learning offer, which means that students can access it on the platform EDUC Moodle at any time and complete it on their own schedule.
In concrete terms, the web-based training consists of three teaching units, jointly co-designed by teachers from the universities of Potsdam, Masaryk and Cagliari. Each unit includes slide-casts (spoken word and slides in English or in Italian with English subtitles) and e-exercises to practice the introduced concepts. At the end of each unit, recommendations for further readings are provided.
Please consider a total work-load of about 5 hours for the slide-casts (+ approximately 30 minutes to complete the e-exercises)
The minimum technical requirement you need to participate is a computer with internet access.

Schedule/Timetable of the learning offer


The web-based training is a continuous course that can be completed at any time on the platform EDUC Moodle.

This intensive course delves into the global history of processes of refuge-seeking: it explores the many challenges that refugees and migrants face and the opportunities they create in receiving countries. It engages the manifold ways in which citizens have responded to migrants and refugees over time – from the Huguenots’ arrival in Brandenburg-Prussia in 1685 to the present – and in various places, including France, Australia, Uganda, Ethiopia, and Germany. The course also examines the responses and visions of migrants and refugees themselves.

The course brings together 30 students from five European universities through the European Digital UniverCity alliance (EDUC), for ten weeks of online learning (starting on April 19, 2022) followed by a week together in Potsdam June 20-25, 2022. In Potsdam students will meet with local decision-makers, civil society and church representatives, and migrants and refugees to learn first-hand about practices and issues relating to migration and integration.

To prepare for this, students will be introduced to theories around integration and will then engage with historic and contemporary case studies that highlight particular issues such as culture, religion, racism, education, and labour in relation to assimilationism and multiculturalism.

Course Description

This course harvests the potentials of cross-border online learning, by enabling an exchange of knowledge, ideas and debates that is vital to the historic study of refugees, both historically and in the present. Through this course, students will gain in-depth knowledge about the history of refuge-seeking in Global History. In several historical case studies students will work together using primary and secondary sources thereby gaining an advanced understanding of processes in refuge-seeking in Global History. Located at the southern tip of the European continent on Sardinia, Italy, the students and lecturers of the University of Cagliari bring a unique understanding and perspective not only to historical debates about refuge- seeking, but also to their contemporary relevance. Joining in with students and lecturers from the University of Potsdam, in Brandenburg, Germany, the aim of this course is to enable a lively exchange of student perspectives, informed by the differences and similarities in our experiences, that enriches the learning outcomes of the participating students in ways that would not otherwise have been possible.

The seminar will address the specificities and challenges of the leading research methods in the different countries and the forms of presentation of the research results, such as the oral presentation with PowerPoint, the scientific article, the scientific poster, the Master's thesis, the doctoral dissertation. There will also be an introduction to research ethics and documentary research. An important focus will also be on research in comparative law. Bringing together students and professors from four Universities from four different countries with different legal cultures promotes the applied study of comparative law. In each participating University, a professor will be in charge of the seminar's organisation in his/her University, including the selection of participating students and coordination with other universities. The University of Paris Nanterre will carry out overall coordination. The solution of practical cases with the different law systems will be also exercised in the workshops to point out the different solutions from one to another country. Each group will have a reporter to report the results in the plenary meeting. This allows students to gain experience of an international presentation in English in front of professors and other students. This experience is useful if they wish to participate in international colloquia (e.g. organised by the EDUC network) at a later stage. 

The seminar will be taught entirely in English. It should include interdisciplinary aspects which are becoming increasingly important today. The presence of law specialists and political scientists guarantees this openness to other disciplines.

The seminar is based on a weekly online meeting (for seven weeks from 1 March to 16 April 22) for one semester on a digital platform such as zoom or Teams, and pedagogical formulas like classical lectures by participating professors, student presentations, teamwork, discussion groups. First, the seminar should be opened by the participating professors' lectures on the methods and organisation of research in their country. At each session, there will be time for discussion with the students. Then mixed groups of students from different countries work together on a topic of their choice and present their work to all participants at a  seminar organized in May in Cagliari (12 and 13 May). They should work together on a defined research topic using the methods they have learned. This also allows them to gain experience of an international presentation in English in front of professors and other students. This experience is useful if they wish to participate in international colloquia (e.g. organised by the EDUC network) at a later stage.

In diesem Seminar werden die „Kinder- und Hausmärchen“ (1812/1815) der Brüder Grimm in ihrem europäischen Kontext betrachtet. Es wird deutlich, dass die Grimms aus einem gesamteuropäischen Reservoir an Mythen, Märchen und Sagen schöpfen, um ihre Sammlung vermeintlich ,urdeutscher‘ Märchen zu schaffen. Bei der Betrachtung dieses Transformationsprozesses profitieren wir von der Vielsprachigkeit der Teilnehmer:innen des Seminars. Da dieses im Rahmen der EDUC-Universitätsallianz angeboten wird, werden im Idealfall auch italienische, französische, tschechische und ungarische Studierende am Kurs teilnehmen (aus Cagliari, Rennes, Nanterre, Brno und Pécs), so dass wir unterschiedliche nationalsprachliche Quellen und ihre poetische Bearbeitung komparatistisch betrachten können. Neben dem Wandel der Märchen in verschiedenen Sprachen werden wir uns auch ihrer Adaption für unterschiedliche Medien zuwenden (Literatur, performative Künste und Film). Das Seminar findet in Präsenz statt, mit einem Hybridangebot für die internationalen Studierenden und wird im Co-Teaching zusammen mit Vinzenz Hoppe und auswärtigen Expert:innen angeboten.
