|Meeting Description:||A tribute to André Basset
Berber was first taught at INALCO in 1913. Ever since, a lot of people have had the honor to contribute to the transmission of this language to students. André Basset was one of them. His career began in a Berber territory, namely, at the Faculté des Lettres d'Alger. It was only in 1940 that he came to work for l'Ecole Nationale des Langues Orientales Vivantes (ex-INALCO), where he took over from Edmond Destaing. André Basset's studies significantly contributed to Berber linguistics, being the first to have introduced the methods of modern linguistic. Berber studies are indebted for the work of this great Berber researcher. Indeed, some linguistic descriptions of Berber varieties by André Basset, are the only accounts that we have on them. Unfortunately, he couldn't complete his project since he died in 1956 while still in office.
For the commemoration of the sixtieth anniversary of André Basset's death, we would like pay a tribute to the man and his work via a scientific conference. This will be the first biennial international conference on Berber linguistics.
