Lecture by Dr. Larissa Aronin, Assc. Prof. Oranim Academic College of Education, Tivon, Israel:
on 6/18/2019 / 6:05 – 7:45 p.m. --- S103|23:
The Languages of Israel
The lecture deals with the current linguistic situation in Israel, the land of rich historical traditions and bustling mix of cultures.
The focus of the lecture is on the diversity of languages and the ways individuals and communities navigate in this highly multilingual setting. How many and which languages are in daily use? Who speaks, forgets and revives them? What was the „war of the languages“ in 1913 at the Technion about? Is German spoken in Israel? Is it allowed to speak Amharic? Do Israelis speak Hebrew or Israelite? How are the language policies in the country related to its linguistic reality? These and other questions will be answered in the lecture.
To our great regret, the Israel excursion planned for this year cannot take place. The planning for an Israel excursion 2020/2021 has already begun.
