Spanish in Europe
Demography of the speakers of a language
The interdisciplinary research project Spanish in Europe analyses the Spanish language in the old continent. It aims to provide a quantitative and qualitative description of the linguistic and cultural geography of Spanish and its speakers with a specific focus on the dynamics of migration, demography and education. The demolinguistic methods developed for this purpose enable us to understand the process of internationalisation of the Spanish language and is simultaneously useful as an empirical basis for language and culture planning.
Virtual Symposium from 21 to 23 July 2021
From 21-23 July, the HCIAS will be hosting the first virtual symposium for the international project Spanish in Europe. During this event, the first results will be presented along with a dicussion on demolinguistic methods. Prior registration at firstname.lastname@example.org is required.
The aim of the symposium is to create a space for dialogue and exchange of ideas, to share the first results of the project and to discuss methodological issues. The scheduled sessions will address issues related to demolinguistic sources and their contrast, reliability and validity, as well as methodological problems in statistical analysis, data structuring and variables. Initial interpretations of the data collected will also be presented.
