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: Organisé dans le cadre du Congrès mondial acadien 2014, le colloque 'L'Acadie dans tous ses défis/Acadia and its Challenges' vise à privilégier une réflexion sur l'Acadie et son devenir, sur les Acadiennes et les Acadiens et les défis à relever dans un monde en constante mutation.

Dans le cadre de ce colloque, la journée d'étude 'Langues, discours et idéologies', qui se tiendra le 13 août 2014, a pour objectif d'approfondir les réflexions, en les croisant autour des concepts 'discours', 'idéologies' et 'pratiques langagières'. Il sera particulièrement question du français à l'école et du français langue de travail dans le contexte minoritaire francophone canadien, contexte dans lequel les discours sur la langue sont inévitablement teintés d'idéologies qui se confrontent dans des débats de société exposés sur la sphère publique, par les médias.

Held during the Congrès mondial acadien 2014, the seminar 'Acadia and its Challenges' will focus on a reflection on Acadia and its future, and on the challenges faced by Acadians in an ever-changing world.

As part of the seminar, the study day on Languages, Discourse and Ideology will be held on August 13, 2014 and its objective will be to broaden the reflections, while interweaving them around the concepts of 'discourse', 'ideology' and 'language practices'. Specifically, the subjects to be discussed will be: the use of French in school and in the work environment in the context of Canadian French minority, where the discourses on language are inevitably tainted by ideologies and brought out in the public sphere by the media as societal debates.
