The Summer School focuses on the Romance languages in the Americas and in Africa. During a preliminary online phase (1st to 14th September 2022), students will receive an introduction to the overall topic and to the historical background of Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian in Africa and in the Americas. During the Summer School itself, held in Graz from 18th to 24th September 2022, various classes, for example concerned with morphosyntax, lexicon and language contact, will be taught by renowned experts in an interactive environment. Students will also work in small groups on their own to carry out guided research tasks on specific topics of the classes, supervised by the teaching personnel.
