Professor Robert Greenberg moved to New Zealand in 2013 from New York City to take up the role of Dean  of the Faculty of Arts and a Professor of Linguistics at the University of Auckland.   He received his PhD from  Yale University in 1991, and subsequently held teaching positions at Yale, Georgetown University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  He has served in academic leadership roles since 2000, most recently serving as a Dean and Professor at Hunter College of the City University of New York. 

Professor Greenberg is a specialist in the languages of Slavic world, especially those spoken in the Balkans and in the former Soviet Union.  He spent much of his research time in the former Yugoslavia, where  he explored the link between language, nationalism, and ethnic conflict.  His publications include numerous books and articles on the Slavic peoples and their languages,with a special emphasis on language policies, language and society, and language and politics.  His book,

报告提要

In this presentation, Professor Greenberg explores several theoretical perspectives on language policy and planning beginning with a framework on how language conflicts can be managed, and moving on to some of the sociolinguistic perspectiveson this topic. The theoretical perspectives are then applied to case studies from North America and Europe.  Comparisons are made between language policies in the United States and Canada,and these are further contrasted with the policies being implemented in Europe.  The presentation concludes with an analysis of the situation in the former Yugoslavia especially regarding matters of linguistic reciprocity across new national boundaries in the Balkan region.
