Description:

We welcome you to a presentation about Amish culture and language and a discussion of immigration and heritage in the context of global migration past and present. The presentations will be based on research conducted as part of the MKI’s Pennsylvania Dutch Documentation Project (PDDP) and will showcase materials from the MKI archives. The PDDP aims to document the past and present of this growing language for the benefit of both scholars and the general public.

The program is led by Mark Louden, MKI Co-Director and Professor of German Linguistics at UW–Madison, a fluent speaker of Pennsylvania Dutch and an expert on Amish faith and culture. He is also the founder of the MKI’s newly established Pennsylvania Dutch Documentation Project.
