Collecting from Catalonia

Books on Catalunya
Despite shrinking budgets, the Library continues to acquire materials in more than 60 languages in support of research and teaching on campus. After Portuguese, Catalan remains one of the most popular less commonly taught European romance languages and has benefited in recent years from the Department of Education’s Title VI funding administered through the Institute of European Studies. This blog post hopes to call attention to a talk of interest in the Berkeley Language Center (BLC) next week and to a few newly acquired books in Catalan or related to Catalonia:

Conjugating Catalonia: Language Learning in Turbulent Times
Greta Vollmer Professor Emerita, English & Applied Linguistics Sonoma State University
Wednesday, April 25, 2018
11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
B4 Dwinelle Hall

The talk is sponsored by the Found in Translation (FIT) Working Group – a growing group of U.C. Berkeley community members interested in language, culture and cross-cultural communication.
