Featured Linguist!

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.

Meeting Description: The ÖSKL (Österreichische Studierenden-Konferenz der Linguistik - Austrian Students’ Conference of Linguistics) will take place for the fifth time in 2012, and for the second time in Vienna. The Department for English and American Studies at the University of Vienna is proud to host and accommodate this auspicious event for young linguistic researchers this year and wishes all participants two enjoyable and rewarding days.

The conference also understands itself as a platform through which linguistic students of various backgrounds and affiliations get to socialize, establish contacts, form new friendships and find partners for future linguistic projects. Like the years before, there will be the possibility to publish the proceedings of the conference in the online magazine ‘Wiener Linguistische Gazette’. Apart from that, we are also currently negotiating with some other academic publication outlets.

Conference Details:

The conference opens on Friday 16 November. In the evening, there will be an informal get-together for socialising and getting to know each other. The conference will take place at the Department of English and American Studies on the University Campus, 1090 Wien, Spitalgasse 2, Hof 8. Presentations will be held on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 November.

All participants are responsible for their own accommodation. However, we will upload some suggestions and recommended hostels, hotels, etc. that are close to Campus onto our homepage in due course. If you are a student of linguistics currently living in Vienna, planning on presenting at or attending the conference, and would be able and willing to accommodate presenters from out of town, please let us know via email. If you will be coming in from out of town and would prefer private accommodation, please do likewise (although we cannot, of course, make any promises).

Unfortunately, we have not yet received full confirmation on our financial support, so we do not know yet whether there will be a registration fee (for presenters or attendees). In any case, it should not exceed 10 Euros or so. More information will follow. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, we will be pleased to assist you.

The organisational team is looking forward to many participants:
