CANCELLED Swedish Minority Languages

Tuesday, August 6, 2019 - 4:30pm to 6:00pm

This class meets for 4 Tuesdays beginning August 6 from 4:30-6:00 p.m.

Why does the Swedish government subsidize speakers of Finnish, Sami, Yiddish, Meänkieli and Roma?  What is Meänkieli, by the way? What classifies a language as a minority language in Sweden, and what are some challenges of the current definition? Come and learn about the official minority languages of Sweden, both historically and in present-day Sweden. This class will be held in English.
