The "SemanticShifts" Summer School will be held
in Frejus (Destremau resort)
from September 12 to September 23 2022

The main objective of this Summer School is to explore the crossover between two focal areas of research in semantics  –  grammaticalization and  lexical semantics – from a range of interdisciplinary perspectives such as language contact, areal linguistics, lexical typology and diachrony, as well as computer-assisted methodologies and tools. The school is intended for master and doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers, and scholars.

The SemanticShifts Summer School will be in a plenary format: participants will be able to attend all twelve courses and workshops, as no parallel sessions have been scheduled. The courses will be presented in English. Two afternoons have also been set aside for discussion between the participants (Master classes and students presentations).

Students who wish to participate should send a letter of motivation by the 15th of May to the organizers at the following address: The selected students will have the opportunity to apply for Master classes and presentations.
