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.

Book Information


Title: Teaching Language and Culture in an Era of Complexity
Subtitle: Interdisciplinary Approaches for an Interrelated World
Edited By: Joëlle Aden
Trevor Grimshaw
Hermine Penz
Series Title: GRAMM-R. Studies of French Linguistics - Volume 7

This book contains contributions in English and French.

The 21st century presents significant challenges for the teaching of
language and culture. More than ever before, educators are faced with a
complex and dynamic landscape of beliefs and practices, where diversity and
interculturality create constantly shifting identities. This volume offers
an interdisciplinary response to the uncertainties of our era. It takes as
its focus two key notions: interrelatedness and universes of belief and
thought. The contributors offer illuminating insights on topics such as
empathy, constructions of Self and Other, the cultivation of intercultural
awareness and the role of English as a Lingua Franca. As such, the volume
makes a significant step towards developing a theoretical and pedagogical
paradigm appropriate for our plurilingual and pluricultural world.
