A conference as a multi-course language menu that linguists and those interested in languages can happily sink their teeth into: that sounds great! A different topic will be discussed every day. The more courses, or days, the more layers!
The first two days focus on “linguistics”, while the last two consider “multilingualism in Europe”. Other subjects will be discussed throughout the four days of the conference, such as the literary tradition of small European languages (and the relationship of small languages to the relevant “majority language”) and the medieval roots of the Frisian language.
The mix of topics and subjects make it possible to attend one or more specific conference days, or the complete four-day conference.
