New Publication: Volume with articles about "Linguistic Landscapes and Spot German at the Crossroads between Linguistics and German Didactics"
We would hereby like to let you know about a book which might be of relevance to those interested in the German language in the Baltic states. As the result of a workshop that took place at Tallinn University in 2015, the DAAD-funded volume "Linguistic Landscapes und Spot German an der Schnittstelle von Sprachwissenschaft und Deutschdidaktik" has appeared at Iudicium in Munich. Editors are Maris Saagpakk, head of German philology at Tallinn University, and Heiko F. Marten, head of the DAAD Information Centre in Riga. It investigates and discusses where the German language is visible in public space in countries outside the German-speaking core area, with a particular focus on the Baltic states - and what that implies for the societal functions of German. At the same time, the book provides suggestions and practical advice for projects which aim at investigating languages in public space in contexts of language teaching and philology at schools and universities.
