LitCo - Literacies in Contact

The DFG-funded research network of 15 international scholars has been developed and is conducted by Constanze Weth and Manuela Böhm (University of Kassel).

Writing is, because of its durability and strongly rules-oriented system, far more institutionalised than oral language. It is therefore necessary to develop theories about and models of all the different forms of written language contact. However, the basis for theories in the field of language contact research and multiliteracies has been almost entirely oral language data. The study of language contact phenomena based on written language data has been done only on a small scale, particularly either in the field of historical linguistics or in the field of New Literacy Studies. In this sense the major goal of LitCo is to bring about a change of perspective in current fields of studies and to systematically relate multilingualism with multiliteracies.
