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.

The International Academic Forum in conjunction with its global partners is proud to announce the 3rd Asian Conference on Literature and Librarianship, to be held April 4-7, 2013, at the Ramada Osaka, Osaka, Japan.

Conference Theme: Connectedness, Identity and Alienation

As the country that gave the world the novel one thousand years ago, and subsequently haiku and manga, Japan’s long and rich literary history make it an ideal place to bring together academics, writers, and librarians to celebrate, debate, and explore their common passion. The aim of this International Conference is to encourage academics, scholars and practitioners representing an exciting diversity of countries, cultures, and religions to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum encouraging respectful dialogue.

LibrAsia 2013 is not only an academic conference, but will again this year offer a number of talks, workshops, and readings of original works, in the context of an exciting long weekend of interdisciplinary and intercultural discussion. The Land of the Rising Sun offers an amazing juxtaposition of cultures, of east and west, of religious and secular, and of course the conference theme of ‘Connectedness, Identity and Alienation’ in literature.
