Cui Bian, PhD student in Higher Education Studies, University of Bordeaux

 

Speaker:

Marie Anne Chateaureynaud, senior lecturer in Linguistic Policy and Applied Linguistics, University of Bordeaux-ESPE

 

Abstract:

The role of new technology for supporting minority languages will be analysed through three case studies: a threatened language, a native language of migrants abroad, and a diaspora language worldwide. In particular the lecture will focus on the case of the Occitan language, the case of the Hungarian language spoken by migrants in the USA, and the case of Greek language learning for children of migrants abroad.
