Summer School «Minority languages: language rights and practices»

This is a training proposal on the rights associated with minority languages and the practices of their users. With the planned activities, the construction of knowledge by the student himself is sought from the materials provided through participatory dynamics. The organising team is made up of people with a proven track record in dealing with the problem addressed: the co-Heads of the Department of Linguistic Rights, Vicenta Tasa and Rafael Castelló, and the Head of the Languages and Linguistic Policies Unit, Ferran Suay, have produced multiple publications linked to the proposed object of study. On the other hand, they also provide a powerful institutional commitment of the University of Valencia with the proposal, since all three are responsible for vital units of the university itself. The structures linked to the organisation of the proposal are: the Chair of Linguistic Rights, the Summer University of Gandia, and the Vice-Rectorate for Internationalization and Multilingualism, in partnership with ELEN. The activities will take place in the city of Gandia, where the University of Valencia has the facilities of its summer university. The planned dates are those between Monday 18th July and Friday 22nd of July 2022. Every day, the begins with a key lecture by a guest. Next, a participatory activity will be carried out by the attendees, organised in groups. They will discuss what the lecturer has proposed to conclude with a proposal shared by the team. Later on, the topic will be discussed in a Round Table in which two guests will participate together with the contribution from the attendees. The session will conclude with a Discussion.
