Congratulations to Ellen Brösterhaus on Winning the Prestigious Anéla/VIOT Award!

We are thrilled to announce that our alumna, Ellen Brösterhaus, has won the first prize at the Anéla/VIOT Junior Day 2024 in Nijmegen for her outstanding Master’s thesis in Applied Linguistics. Ellen’s groundbreaking research, conducted under interdisciplinary supervision in English and Dutch studies, explored common syntactic errors among German L3 learners of Dutch and provided significant insights supporting the L2 Status Factor Hypothesis (Bardel & Falk 2007, 2012).

Ellen’s exceptional work stood out for its robust research design, meticulous argumentation, and convincing evaluation of results. Her achievement, shared with Flemish alumna Sara Bergen from the University of Antwerp, marks a significant recognition by the Dutch/Flemish society Anéla/VIOT.

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Ellen for this well-deserved honor. Bravo, Ellen!

    Film Screening: "Songs that Never End" by Dr. Yehuda Sharim from the University of California

    The film is about the Dayan family, who fled their home in Iran to the United States, only to be greeted in Houston with hurricanes and perilous politics. In particular, the film accompanies the nine-year-old Hana in her struggles to be heard, questioning the immigrant realities in the USA, while longing for songs about a kind world.

    This event is hosted by the Erasmus+ "MigraMedia" Project. It is free and open to the public.
