4-yrs PhD Vacancy in Sociolinguistics
LIMES: Cross-Border Research | Linguistic and Cultural Borders: Transparent Or Not (1 fte)
In this project, the focus will be on how coal miners’ languages and cultures in the former mining region north of Aachen in Germany (Low German/German speaking) and the Eastern Mine District with Heerlen as its centre in the Netherlands (Dutch/dialect speaking) are taken up in new contexts with new actors, how they are authenticated and legitimated during public events that are considered unique for the region. These two neighbouring areas are separated by a national border but share a common coal mining past and a common linguistic past.
Please visit the Maastricht University website for more information on the PhD position and how to apply.
