Abstract [en]

For several centuries following its founding in 1477, all lectures and dissertations at Uppsala University were in Latin. Then, during one century, from 1852 to 1953, several languages came into use: there was a transition from Latin to Swedish, and then to French, German, and English. In the paper this transition is illustrated by language choice in doctoral theses in mathematics and in a Nordic journal.
