Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

ISSN 2212-9006

The overarching aim of the Children's Literature, Culture, and
Cognition series is to promote truly new theoretical approaches in the
realm of children’s literature research on the one hand, and to
emphasize a non-Anglo-American focus, bringing in exciting research
from other areas. In addition, the new book series shall present
research from many linguistic areas to an international audience,
reinforce interaction between research conducted in many different
languages and present high standard research on the basis of
secondary sources in a number of languages and based in a variety of
research traditions. Basically the series should encourage a cross- and
interdisciplinary approach on the basis of literary studies, media
studies, comparative studies, reception studies, literacy studies,
cognitive studies and linguistics. The series should include
monographs and essay collections which are international in scope and
intend to stimulate innovative research in children’s literature with a
focus on children’s literature (including other media), children’s culture
and cognition, thus encouraging interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary
research in this expanding field.
