Virtual Middlebury

Open to the Public

Identities can coalesce around geography, religion,
ethnicity, borders, ideologies, or a combination of these
things, in often fragile equilibria. Catalan identity is a
complex cocktail, but its primary core is language. We will
do a whirlwind tour of the Catalan language, discussing
its history and longevity, its different expressions—in
Catalonia, Valencia, the Balearic Islands, Roussillon—the
spectrum of Catalan linguistic policy, its strengths and
weaknesses and prospect for survival.
