National Course on Historical Sociolinguistics
This webpage collects information about an online national Master’s course in Historical Sociolinguistics including teaching materials and other resources. The course is a national initiative supported by the SLUGU consortium of Humanities and Theology Faculties comprising Stockholm University, Lund University, Uppsala University, University of Gothenburg and Umeå University.
Major themes of the course include the spread of linguistic innovations, literacy in past societies, standardization, historical multilingualism, and language and group identity. We also introduce Digital Humanities research infrastructures and methods in historical sociolinguistics. Find out more via introductory videos and course overview.
The course is inter-disciplinary in a sense that students of linguistics or any kind of specific language interested in the subject area are welcome to apply. The course is open for students affiliated with a Swedish university. You can register via antagning.se.
