Diversity in Italy. Italian dialects and historical minority languages

Italy is one of the most linguistically diverse areas in Europe. Join us to learn more about minority and regional languages spoken in the country besides Italian!

Wednesday, February 16, 2022
5:30pm – 6:30pm
Carson Hall 060
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Conferences, Lectures & Seminars
Registration required.

As the International Mother Language Day (February 21st) is approaching, Andrea Zoller, a native Venetian and Ladin speaker from Italy, is inviting you to learn more about language diversity in his home country. Thanks to authentic materials - videos and recordings made explicitly for this event at Dartmouth - you will have the chance to understand how "Italian (linguistic) identity" is formed by a plurality of traditions and peoples... and not just by one monolithic language!

This event is particularly suited for those who are interested in cross-language studies, interlanguage comprehension, and diversity.
