From the 2nd - 6th June 2014, there will be a week of workshops specifically for PhD students in onomastics. The course is being held at the University of Copenhagen, and has been designed by onomastic researchers from both Copenhagen and Glasgow. The course description is given below, and can also be found at (where you will also find the link for registration and the full programme of workshops for the week).


Advancing Onomastic Research. The Copenhagen-Glasgow PhD Program

PhD School at the Faculty of Humanities at University of Copenhagen

The course Advancing Onomastic Research originates in a joint wish on behalf of the Copenhagen and Glasgow name research environments to provide high quality, tailor made PhD-courses for our students of onomastics at the universities in Glasgow, Copenhagen and elsewhere.

This course will have a theoretical as well as a practical focus. Thus, the course will cover different types of theoretical models; look at the diversity of onomastics and the prospects and problems of such a diversified field of study. In addition, onomastics is very much a multi- and interdisciplinary subject and many of the new developments in related disciplines may be utilised with great advantage. Part of the course will be devoted to insight sessions into new technology and their uses.

Being a PhD-student can be one of the greatest times in one’s life where you shape your future yourself. To ease the transition between PhD and the afterlife, Advancing Onomastic Research aims at providing a new, international network between onomastic PhD-students which will not only forge future collaborations but also be shown how to tap into the many external funding opportunities.
