Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Meeting Description: The European Network for Intercultural Education Activities (ENIEDA) is convening a panel at the forthcoming International Symposium 'Discursive Constructions of Europe', Faculty of Economy, Bydgoszcz, Poland, 15-16 November 2013. The proposed panel is entitled '(Beyond) Europe: Text, Context and Interaction'.

The Bygdoszcz Symposium aims to explore the current conceptualizations of Europe and Europeanness and their expressions in a variety of discourses in/of/about Europe: national vs. international, institutionalized, media, as well as local/individual discourses of citizens. For more details about the event please check the conference website: http://dceconference.byd.pl.

The idea behind the ENIEDA panel, however, is to bring together various perspectives on how European and other identities are constructed, negotiated, mediated, challenged and (finally) established across texts, genres and public spaces.
