The course focused on the minor Finnic languages Ingrian, Karelian, Kven, Livonian, Meänkieli, South Estonian, Veps and Vote. These range in number of native speakers from ca. 80 000 (South Estonian) to less than 10 (Livonian), and are mainly spoken in Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Norway, Russia and Sweden.
The topics of the E-Learning course Finnic were deepened at the corresponding summer workshop hosted by Uppsala University from 18.-22.6. There were sessions with native speakers of Livonian (Valt Ernštreit), Veps (Olga Žukova) and South Estonian (Helen Plado).
