Vulnerable Languages and Linguistic Varieties in Serbia

International conference “Semiotic landscapes of multilingual border regions”

On November 9 and 10, 2023, Friedrich Schiller University in Jena organized the conference titled “Semiotic landscapes of multilingual border regions”. Mirjana Mirić, member of the VLingS project, participated online in the conference with the paper “Romani language education in Serbia”. The presentation was partly based on data collected during field research in Romani communities conducted within the VLingS project. The focus was on the discrepancy between the legal framework and language policies aimed at minority language education in Serbia and the actual implementation of these policies in practice, with special attention to Romani language education.
