Featured Linguist!

Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Meeting Description: From the perspective of linguistic, literary and cultural studies, with a critical and humanistic point of view in mind, we seek to explore the underlying social, cultural, cross-cultural and cross-linguistic structures, which may be assumed or played out within particular texts. In the widest perspective, to quote form a recent book, we share the belief that: '…discourse analysis is one way to engage in a very important human task. The task is this: to think more deeply about the meanings we give people's words so as to make ourselves better, more humane people and the world a better, more humane place.' (J. P. Gee, 2005)

Conference languages are English and Serbian, for 15-minute presentations followed by 5 minute discussion time.
