Center of Historical Language Studies

The Center of Historical Language Studies (ZhS) is an inter-faculty working group at LMU Munich on subjects from the fields of philology and language studies in cooperation with the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities. The ZhS reflects the interaction between the past and present of languages and examines such topics as diachronic philology, linguistic relatedness, and reconstruction of proto-languages, research on language contact, socio-linguistics and cultural history. The ZhS provides students and scholars with a forum for the high-profile interdisciplinary exchange of ideas.
