Persoonlijke informatie

Publicaties: R&D Database

Els Belsack received her BA and MA in English and Dutch Linguistics and Literature (2004-2008) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and obtained a postgraduate in Scandinavistics at the Universiteit Gent (2008-2010). Her main research interests can be summarized as Historical Sociolinguistics, Language Policy & Planning, Language & Nationalism, Linguistic Purism and Scandinavistics in general. She is currently working as a PhD student at the VUB (in cooperation with the University of Agder, Norway) on a  comparative analysis of  the language planning processes of Southern Dutch and Norwegian during the long 19th century (1794-1917). The problematic selection and codification of the standard language and more specifically the competition between the integrationist and particularist movement in Flanders vs. the Norwegian Bokmål and Nynorsk supporters are the main focus of her investigation.
